[edit] Plans

Several miles up a forest road and on the wall of a canyon, this one didn't really look all that promising. But it was the best shot available on my route for the day (Great Falls to Bonners Ferry, so I decided to give it a go.

[edit] Expedition

It worked out fine! NF-4402 deteriorated a little after the first half mile, but remained very useable to within .20 miles of the hashpoint. After that there was a lot of climbing through thick forest. I stopped a few times to ask myself if I was getting myself into danger, but was able to answer: nope! Rather than worry too much about a beeline to the hashpoint, I took whatever relatively clear stretch of forest would take me up to the right elevation, and then followed the contour to the point. Then I climbed back down, dusted myself off, and went along my merry way.
