Long time since posting…
We took a mid-week romp up Unicorn, seen here from the Stevens Canyon road.


You can skin after the first 1/4 mile but streams, rock/dirt and willow areas will melt out fast.

east facing at 6,500 was smooth:




steep facing southwest was smooth:


but getting cuppy on S lower elevation slopes:
