5.5 miles of hiking • 1500' elevation gain •
Having just a few hours (sorry again Eric!), we decided to do a little exploring in the Archer Mountain complex. Did a little getting lost, found a lot of blowdown—especially starting at where the base of Archer converges (where I tagged the pin)—which slowed things way down. With 1000 ft of gain + a blowdown every 20 ft ahead of us, we decided to pack it in.
I want to come back here when things get cleaned up a bit. Any idea if we can just take a bow saw and go at it, or is this really a super special protected area?
Not getting any decent views, we stopped at the western Cape Horn tunnel and did the quick trip up to the viewpoint. Super windy.
