The East Ridge Route looks very doable in this picture. I did it back in the late 70s, early May. It's a good one for early Spring. The bod no longer appreciates the cold so I don't do that any more. I'm surprised more folks on SP don't climb these mountains from the east side. It's much nicer, especially in the summer. No crowds, lots of flowers.
Thanks, Aaron. I did the Decalibron early last May and there was a good bit more snow in the bowl from Kite Lake than there appears to be around this time of year on the East Ridge. Thanks for the input.
