The hill pictured is Murphy's Hogback and it is steeper than it looks. There are some rock steps near the top and that is probably what ate the GS's sump. On the other hand the views from the top of the Hogback are spectacular and it is a nice place to wait for help if the weather is good. Another somewhat technical hill is Hardscrabble. Both of these hills are downhill counterclockwise and uphill the other way. Except for these two hills, the trail is pretty easy. Depending on the weather, you could run into deep sand, especially around Potato Bottom, or mud. The scenery is classic "western movie" and well worth the trip IMHO. Hope you have a great time.
