Also, can you rap off the north end of the Mathes with a single rope?

From Bud Lake there was lots of snow to be had, I got a nice glissade off the North side of the Echo Peaks toward Cathedral. As mentioned too much snow for mosquitos still up high, in the Meadows they are starting to come out. It was windy yesterday and froze overnight, so hopefully the freezing will keep them at bay.
