I love this route!! I have been up this a couple of times in the past but had never documented any of the trips. Had to come back with the wife and get pics, etc. It is one of the most aesthetic and straight forward lines you will find. The ski descent is amazing as well. Highly recommended!
Flawless day...bushwacked up the Northwest Ridge dirtectly to the summit ridge. Encountered some bulletproof snow near the top, but nothing snowshoes or crampons couldn't get up. Also, lots of rock exposed if those were (for some ungodly reason) not within your possession.
