Conditions: This is a class IV (some steep hills and rock scrambling) to the collection site with a 1.25 mile hike from 3,600 feet altitude to 4,200. The stream crossing is very easy as the water level is quite low. Conditions are easier at the bottom of the collection Site, Mineral Gulch, but quickly go to a Class IV as you ascend, which is not required to get good material.
