This looks a little less technical and than the other direction, up to Georgia Pass.

Nice photos!

That's a really excellent stretch of trail and remains surprisingly underused. I love the initial climb and the scenery once up high. A great way to enjoy the season without battling the crowds on the other side of 285!
