This site, which indeed may be he worst site in the BW, got worse - a spruce tree fell across the nearly vertical path you climb to access the site. I had to lever myself and swing over - there would currently be no way to pull a Duluth pack to the top easily. A horrible site.

Possibly the worst site in all of BWCA and Quetico. Other than a very nice landing, this site has no flat tent spots, no kitchen, no privacy, and bonus: very buggy. Should be removed by US Forest Service.
