We climbed Mt. Howard and then traversed to Mt. Cirrus. The amost 2000ft glissade from the saddle between Howard and Cirus was one of the best one's I had in RMNP. We picked up our snowshoes where we stashed them above Lake of the Clouds then snowshoed down Hitchens Gulch to the Grand Ditch and back to where we camped at Mosquito pond.
