If you found water actually hidden in bushes at Fobes (or any saddle),
it might have been stashed there by climbers for their use on the way
back down. I do that myself all the time. Hike to the ridgeline, usually
a saddle, stash some water, bag the peak with a lighter pack, then plan
to be out of water at the saddle where I grab my stashed water and
return to the car.
