Part of a two day winter trip camped at the base of Lassen Peak. Climbed Lassen the first afternoon, then traversed the full ridge to right before Brokeoff. Had thoughts of going up Brokeoff but it didn't look like the east ridge went too easy.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
