Not too much post-holing, and I was grateful to have the snow covering the awful talus. Great summit views in all directions. I continued on to "Open Door" (class 3, but ugly and loose), then returned down the bowl. Trip report.
I first climbed up to this special peak in the mid ninties. It was a very cold and extremely windy fall day. I wore ski goggles on the peak because the wind was howling. I have returned four more times over the years to enjoy this very special summit. I have hiked down the SE slopes a couple of the times. I call this area Tilted Valley, because of the wild tilted strata. This peak is one of my personal favorite places on the whole planet.
