Fun and easy climb, got over too quickly

Should have brought rock gear to climb the s arete

The ski down sucked, breakable crust that provided more than enough face plants

An awesome sun drenched day. Climbing with Tom breit we got an early start and on the summit by around noon. Saw only one other party of 2 ahead of us. Conditions lower down were just steep, crusty, avalanche consolidation. Higher up in the crux slot there was more of a melt-freeze cycle going on and a bit harder ice. Views on top were hard to beat.

Climbed with peter in an easy half-day, even after he forgot the pack on pitch 1 and had to retrieve it. Good quality rock in a wonderful setting.

A short 3 hour approach followed by an incredible 700 ft of solid 40-50 degree snow with crampons and ice axe. Best climb of year by far. The final 20 feet was a 4th class boulder hop at the edge of a 20ft thick cornice. Views?! Wow. What a day. With Matt Wacker.
