, little lakes and following the beautiful creek until the point where it leaps over the cliffs south to Lake Vernon. The “plan” was to descend the rocky slabs next to the creek, but I was not sure it would work and my appetite for adventure was low at this point
I did this in June of this year, it was a stroll. Only we decended a ways past where the cascade is. I remember a slabby open area. I really don't remember exactly where, but if anyone is interested I do have a few pictures and can easily pinpoint it. It was easy by staying right.
If I had any skill at all with ropes I'd be all over your crazy schemes. I am quite content even through manzanita and thorns.
