South Bessemer 11.05.02

Ryan and I set out for a somewhat mindless climb, the majority of it stays on logging roads. The climb starts about 7 miles in on the Middle Fork Rd. where there is a big gate with plenty of parking in front of it. Staying on the logging road it will split with one way crossing the creek and the other heading right. Follow the right branch and start climbing. The road is easy travel and there are plenty of stunning views of Russian Butte the Pratt river valley and as you rise farther Garfield, Preacher, Roosevelt, Thomphson, Chikamin and the Dutch Miller group. I reached the summit of South Bessemer (5028) to enjoy the arrival of rain. The climb down went way to slow and we made it out in the dark. Only some small patches of snow and the weather was very mild.

Approx miles 14 and Total climb 4100ft 2:40 up and 2:00 down
