Yea Jim, it goes. Maybe not as clean this year as other years (this is borrowed from Towlie from a previous year):
Here's a couple of pics I marked up showing parts of our route (red is descent, blue is ascent):
The out on Blacksmith was a tricky thin bushwhack. Dan was navigating the flat creek bed area with only one foot strapped in when he collided with a tree. He was in obvious pain (and even a little shock) but still rode out through the steeper, thin snow'd, thick tree'd mess down to Robinson Creek on his own, and never let Toby and I help him pack his stuff out. Dan can speak for himself, but it appeared to be a really deep bruise, and hopefully no worse.
