“Hayes Peak”:
I skinned up Huntsman Ridge Road to “Hayes Peak” and continued west along the ridge towards the summit of Huntsman Ridge. I abandoned mission due to poor visibility, returned back to “Hayes Peak” and descended back to the car. I found a suncrust and powder over plenty of facets. Along the ridge, I encountered two whumpfs, but was not concerned since I was on low angle terrain the whole day.

Distance: ~7 miles
Time: 3:36
