Michael Thompson and I did this via Chic Scotts book. Different approach then the scramble. Cirque Peak was wind blown as I suspected, so we used crampons for last 1000' of this ascent. Snow was so-so, but great day just the same. Not a creature in sight.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
