Vivien at the top of Pass 34a
Easy open forest below the top of the pass
Steeper terrain further down
There were a lot of cut stumps, some very recent, and quite large. Hopefully this was due to the hazard reduction burn that appeared to end at the ridge, and not due to vandalism as has been the case on some other Colo passes.

20kg+ of wire netting! Not sure how they even got this in here!

Nice open section of ridge - while the ridge walking wasn't bad, it was mostly less pleasant than this!
