It wasn't too hot, but it could get buggy in some places. After I ventured through the woods to get to the two main river exposures, that was when the biting deer flies found their new meal. I could only work the exposures of the Widder formation for about an hour before it became intolerable. I hauled out some modest chunks of Widder shale from the wall, but it was awkwardly placed a little too high from the scree, and pretty much vertical with no convenient handholds. So it was back to the south pit for me.
