July 17, 2014: McNeil Point & Barrett Spur (Mt. Hood Wilderness, Oregon)

After hiking from the Top Spur Trailhead to McNeil Point, I went cross-country above Cairn Basin to the foot of Barrett Spur, then went down a very long snowfield that took me back to the Timberline Trail just southwest of Wy'east Basin (map). On the way back, I bushwhacked up a cliff to the top of Bald Mountain, which was a terrible idea; if you want to visit the summit of Bald Mountain, just take the trail!
