Day Two: We broke camp at about 7:30 and contined up to two small lakes (Contact Lakes), then gained the ridge to their west. We followed this ridge only about a half mile before descending to a pass. The steep snow slops on the other side of the pass were a challenge, reaching angles of about 40 degrees with no runout. We again gained the ridge and followed it to its end, which after a short steep descent, placed us on the edge of the Bon-Bon glacier (461665). We crossed the glacier, which is just about flat, and gained the ridge on the glaciers NW side via a chute (439662) ascending to 5700 feet. Here we made camp (441665) under crystal clear skies. At this point we also cached three days worth of food for our return trip.
Day Three: We ascended the ridge bearing 35 degress to the top of "Lactic Acid" hill (450680). Excellent view of many peaks in the interior of the coastal range along the Elaho River. We then descended a broad ridge, bearing 348 degrees, towards some obvious rock outcroppings. From there, bearing 296 degrees, we passed point...
