took a few others into the dreaded Peters canyon for an off trail adventure. this time, we were pushing daylight so opted to climb out of the creek a ways before Pistol Canyon. It was the easiest off trail approach to Peter's Mesa according to the map and after an hour of catsclaw boxing and route finding, we made it to the Mesa and descended to Charlebois for the night. We were "rocked" to sleep for a few hours with stiff winds and blowing rain. Awoke to a chilling 38 degrees and came out on Peter's trail proper under cloudy skies and cold breezes. Although I did not get to finish the loop, the views from the Mesa allowed me to spy some new routes, so I'll be back (the te-wanator)

I was amazed to see Charlebois trough is completely dry - so much for the forest service and their pet minnows... :(
