The objectives from the upper parking area at Hyndman Creek. I biked to an obvious point, abandoned the bike and continued on foot.
Ditched my pack and climbed the west peak of Handwerk. Spitzl/Goat & Handwerk's east summit.
Although solo, I had friends.
And had the usual effect on the ladies.
That night I camped in the Handwerk/Duncan basin and took a stroll up valley. Here's Duncan Ridge.
The next day a proceeded to the Spitzl/Handwerk basin (N. Fork Hyndman Creek).
Perhaps the ladies did like me, but it's tough to tell if it's not a bunch of guys. I've never seen so many lady bugs, you had to watch your step. This is on the summit of the Spitzl.
DBE from the Spitzl.
That night, I camped on this perfectly flat spot with awesome views on a small saddle on the northwest side of Handwerk.
The next day I checked out the Pioneer Cabin.
Words to live by.
