Wetterhorn Peak Trip Report (#10963)

During descent we encountered a group of badge-heavy granola-nazis engaged in "trail modification," who thought they would order us back up the mountain after our somewhat grueling ascent, made more difficult by the unadvertised closing of the usual route to the summit by these same Barney Fifes. The new route, which we dutifully followed down the mountain, is designed to avoid climber contact with anything but rock and is one of the more bizarre examples of trail engineering you'll ever encounter.
