Route: Bushwhack

Relatively quick bushwhack up to Hoyt Hill (located southwest of Mt. Cardigan) in snow free and generally dry conditions. Had to wrap around a few cliff bands, but otherwise it was pretty straight forward. Some views through the trees from near the summit, but nothing open view-wise (some open meadows on the ridge). We didn't venture down to the southern peak, so it's possible there could be a view down there.
