Trip Report

Any time you see the key words "ski" and "bushwhack" in the same trip report you should never ever try to repeat it yourself. You've been warned! :) As part of his Opal 35 Project, Kev Barton had his eyes fixed on a winter ascent of either the main peak of "Opoca" or it's eastern outlier, known locally as "East Opoca" or "Elpoca Creek Hill" by Bob Spirko.
