I used to be a SPOT user, but after having the device fail in the field, I couldn't be asked to purchase a new one. VHF or smoke signals for me.

Oh, I didn't know you meant the road to Shushartie, which doesn't exist. Yes, it would add a full day, maybe more, of bushwhacking if you want to try to hike to Shushartie from the spur road. It's...

I enjoyed myself, I just didn't find the mountain aesthetically pleasing, and the crowds of tourons and piles of shit didn't help.
