Awesome day, finally hitting the elusive Green Point Mountain on a day with blue skies! Always been there in a cloud before. Still lots of snow (6-8') up on the plateau. Don't go without strong nav skills!

Went up Nick Eaton Way, which is "pretty real" according to my trusty hiking buddy. That ridge was bare, and a true delight to traverse. Real snow started following the quick climb just to the south. But worries about finding the Herman cutoff proved needless, as the snow melted quickly on the southwest facing ridge. Cedar Swamp was just a freaking delight, as always!
