Stood atop North Trapper for the second time. Baker Lake is still frozen and there's plenty of snow up high. Encountered wide variety of snow conditions; wait for the sun to hit the snow if you don't have crampons.
Climbed for the second time. This outing was with Forest Dean (Missoula, MT) and Nathan (Salmon, ID). Weather was close to perfect. My first time doing a climb in snow-filled couloirs. Hard work, to be sure.
North Trapper, a summit I thought I'd never see. But with the help of Tim Sharp and good weather, all 6 of us reached the summit.
"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."
