We took the Bluff Springs trail and made our ascent via the Ely-Anderson trail. A great trek to the summit where we signed the log - two others so far in 2018! What we should have done was returned the same way we came! 🤪 Instead we were going to make a lasso and followed the ridgeline to the west face. We made the mistake of turning to the south at 2 huge cairns and found ourselves cliffed out (obviously those cairns didn't mark the path we wanted) Had to climb back up and continued to the west. Spent some time trying to determine the best way down. We eventually found a steep drainage that took us down to the Terrapin Trail. Was glad to finally get to a flat, established trail!
