This is a bushwhack. It was our second attempt.
We didn't encounter any nettles on the bushwhack portion.
There were nettles bordering the trailed portion, but they weren't bad.

We started the bushwhack after this stream crossing

Overjoyed to find the canister

Herd path at the summit. We found no herd path up. But going down, we went on and off a herd path.
