I wont be able to help on this one if anyone's doing this soon. I have talked to Matt Glass and we are trying to come up with a time this week to haul WR up to Rollins/JC and get the rest of the downed trees cleaned up and access the situation. With the winds and snow bands coming every couple days in the high country our windows of opportunity are closing fast!

How far up the trail are the trees? And how big are they? Bow saw size or chainsaw size?
