Just got reception on day 51 mile 800+ Crossed Forester pass yesterday, day 50, 13,200 ft highest point on the PCT . Scary fun snow, ice, 1000 foot vertical ascent scary high, microspikes and poles. Mammoth in 11 days from now. Resting a zero day in Bishop. Lucky me, I had my young Irish buddy Matt, 23 years young to keep me company on the ascent and decent. Viva Ireland
