Stopped by snow on the Johnson RidgeRd at 2750'. Hiking the remaining
old growth forest.  Johnson Creek Crossing.  Approaching the N false summit.

  
The ridge route looks to have a Rock Point between us and the summit.
The Rock Pt was not that easy to get around; approach, decent, & by.

          
Beautiful view of Mt Fernow. John making the final ascent with sopy leading
the way. On the summit!  Merchant-Townsend and Gunn summits.

    
Index & Barring summits.  Conglomerate & Spire summits.  John performing
a "body" posthole.  Ian playing with John's dog Sopy.
