46-1 Chantry Flat to Newcomb Pass, Newcomb Saddle

Participants: Craig Cheetham and Tom Chester
Date: 22 May 1996 (Written up 20 October 1996)

Trip written up 5 months later, so some details may be missing. We started down the Sturtevant Trail, and took the Lower Falls Trail to the junction with the Upper Falls Trail. We made it to Newcomb Pass, but ate lunch hurriedly because the flies were awful in the shade at the Pass. We continued on to the Saddle, and went a bit past it since it had been a long time since we were there. We came back via the Upper Falls Trail.
