If you want to do Lost River or Brietenbach this weekend I would go along.

Oh man, I should have blogged sooner, we probably would have said yes, but we have put too much into our research on Donaldson and Church to change now. Sorry!

When crossing the creek about a 1/2 mile up the trail look for the dirt trail on the right side of the creek. We found it on the way down. We slogged up the creek bed for a good portion of the the lower section. This will save your feet and some time as well.

Could do Sat.,
Plan on a 10 hr day if you want to double summit. There is running water up to 10,ooo ft. if you want to pump. We ran out on the way back, I recomend helmets for the last portion of the climb.

Climb on.
