Route: Mt. Morgan Trail, Morse Trail, Mt. Percival Trail, Crawford-Ridgepole Trail, bushwhack, Crawford-Ridgepole Trail, Mt. Morgan Trail

Morse Trail and Mt. Percival trails were generally dry. Crawford Ridgepole Trail between the peaks was also generally dry with minor mud. Did the short bushwhack to the Sawtooth peak. A few potential highpoints (each with cairns). A little scrappy in places, but not bad, and only a few hundred feet south of the trail. Some directional views to be found as well.

Encountered ice on the upper Mt. Morgan Trail on either side of the upper Crawford Ridgepole Trail junction. Descended via the ladders, which was ice free (but not a recommended descent). No ice below there.
