Arranged via email.

Only for folks with recent/frequent scrambles of a similar strenuousness.  We will be doing a counter-clockwise loop that starts (and ends) at the Upper Dungeness River trailhead.  From the cars we will backtrack a bit along the road until we cross the bridge over Mueller Creek (may be substantial flow).  From there we will scramble/ascend ~600’ on a forested ridgelet to reach the Mueller Creek trail/parking area.  From Tyler Peak we will run the ridge to Baldy, then descend SE from Point 6537 on the Upper Maynard Burn Trail.  The day will end by either descending the ridglet that we ascended at the start of our day, or following the Lower Maynard Burn Trail and Royal Basin Trail to reach the cars.  Photos from other trips to this venue can be seen here.
