Great stuff Jackson!

Your images perfectly capture why so many consider The Winds
their favorite backcountry destination.

You may have beat the Fish Creek Park mosquitoes with this one. There was a place or two we walked through in the woods where they were thick like this, but never in camp (thank goodness). You walk through and there are constantly dozens to hundreds of them just bouncing off of you. This picture may as well be of the apocalypse.
The worst part was it was my wife's first backpacking trip and I typically don't have issues with mosquitos so I only brought a small bottle of deet free spray that we ran out of in the first couple hours... Your description of apocalyptic is spot on as I'm sure if anyone was watching us out of our tent they probably thought we were possessed...

How did I miss this report until just now? Getting me stoked as I will be making that area part of my August trip. Nice pics.

Thanks for the report. Love the pictures. Not a route you see a lot of trip reports on, too. Good luck on the exam!

Looked stunning!
Funny, before I saw the caption, when I saw the bear bag hang photo I thought, ‘Wow, that’s a good hang!’
Haha
Thanks for sharing!
Don’t think it has been a week and a half yet, so goodluck on the BAR!

Great updates! Much appreciated. Going to this general area for a week starting in a couple of days.
Knowing you you don't need reminder but you best be getting under that awesome North Face of Mt. Hooker, the only Grade V in the Windies and scout Musumbeah - perhaps one of the finest Grade IV's !
