Route: Livermore Trail, bushwhack

The first few tenths of the Livermore Trail was plowed due to an active logging project. Thereafter, the sum of the recent storms resulted in breaking trail in about 18-24" of powder. We broke up to the last water crossing (where the trail climbs steeply to the left), the headed up into the birch glade and worked our way around the false peak (staying south of the ridge to avoid blowdown and thicker spruce) to the recognized summit, generally in good woods.
