    You should try posting this to the Ultralight Gear Trade subReddit forum. I bet it'd be gone very fast at that price. Maybe even start higher.

    Which direction were you hiking?

    As globetruck mentioned, my first thought was to the blue-blazed Mau Har on Three Ridges that dumps you out at a shelter as well.
