Glad you enjoyed the recounting of my journey. Mitch, after esearching others experiences I would proably try to get the pct permit in advance for entry into the USA. At the other end its self registration for the trail. Not quite sure what redtape is needed though. For Depot Creek because of its isolated nature they make allowance for phone in and that was easy. I was treated well by Rosemary at the Marlblemount North Cascade NP ranger station, Ed

I'm sure your class 3 to 4 with some exposure(!) is a bit underated on this.

Great pictures to go with your descriptive narrative and thoughts.

This is an amazing trip Ed - bonus points for the use of the word "grotty". Reminds me of my childhood.

Took me two morning cup of coffee's to read through this excellent report. Ed, you did a great job of conveying the experience, it felt like I was tagging along. When Bob told me he'd spotted you up there, I was hoping we'd find out about your adventure...

Incredible solo trip! Very well written, felt like I could picture everything you experienced. I really enjoyed how you conveyed your thought process being out there alone and still tackling the class 3 & 4 scrambling with the weather turning on you. All I can say is fair play and quite the admirable feat!

Wow, what an adventure. Navigating those peaks with such limited visibility would not be an easy feat, congratulations on a well deserved blue berry crumble, it sounds like you earned several of them! Sorry to hear you did not get better weather for Tapto Lakes portion. The good news is it has a considerably easier route there than the way you went in so you can always revisit in the future.

Wow! All right EAK man. Well done. Even took time for lots of pics of you (freezing). A most excellent adventure.
