After the cabin area, Old Dad Canyon widens while it continues to rise
A route to my right leads to the crest of the Old Dad Mountain range, but it looks like I probably wouldn't be able to make it to Old Dad peak from the top due to excessively steep rock on the ridgeline. So I continue up the canyon.
