Hooked up with snowsavage for the second time since I’ve been in Japan. Went to Myoko with one of his co-workers and found ourselves looking into the crater of an ancient volcano. Lower in the valley, we could see steam escaping and every once in a while we could smell the rotten egg sulfur smell. Looking in the opposite direction provided a view of the mountains of Hakuba. A very scenic summit.
We dropped to the right of the branch that intersects the ridge

I find some powder. Sorta. This damage resulting in me booting up the final 300 or so feet out of the crater.
Trying to be helpful here ^^^smart-guy^^^…maybe he’s unfamiliar w/ the tool. As if I know how long he’s on his trip, I’m sure they could find similar over there…yup, all the way in Japan. He does have 2 days and counting to poke around. For that long and that kind of dough, I doubt they even know what they’re doing. Probably not one person in Japan has a drill. 🙄
