Second cap found on the hike today, had to go up not one but two summits to get here from the 9th Baseline cap. The descent from the 9th Baseline cap was through pretty heavy bush and thus went pretty slow. We heard some branches cracking and were fearful of a bear nearby but nothing came of it. We eventually came across a clear cutline which we were able to take to the start of the second ascent. This ascent was the most difficult part of the hike. It was not exceptionally long but it was pretty steep and had some pretty heavy bush. The forest was actually easier to go up through than the overgrown cutline. The descent from the second summit and ascent to the third summit were a bit more open and easier to traverse through. This was a relief as we were pretty tired at this point. The final approach to the summit was really nice and open. We had lunch and took in the awesome views. Normally at this point in a hike, I feel pretty relieved knowing the hard part is over and its all downhill to the car. This wasn't the case today, we had to go back over the first two summits over again. We took a few shortcuts on the way back but it still was along the same difficulty as it was going out. Pretty impressed with my little brother on this one, he did a good job at keeping up with us. Thanks for the cap!
