seanoFun, steep, not so hard  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 14, 2015

Topped out in a late-season blizzard in an incredibly low-snow year. I was glad to have two tools on one ice bulge near the bottom, but neve and crunchy semi-fresh snow elsewhere made the rest cruiser. Cloud-cover kept it from getting soft. Trip report.

With Max. A soft snow slog with a couple of mixed moves low down to overcome a hollow snow section over a step. Start this thing early if it's warm - the sun bakes it as soon as it rises.

Perfect conditions. Snow was mostly hardpacked for easy kick stepping. Some parts were still deep snow. Didn't have to use my crampons, just ice axe. Ski down was fun as well. The sketchiest part was probably the cornice on top.

I soloed the St Jean Couloir which was total and good ice for the length of it in late October of 1998. The route in hard ice conditions, is propably the fastest way to get to the top of Split Mountain. The almost vertical schrund was the crux with several 50 degree steps higher up. Descended the North Ridge to Red Lake and hiked out to the TH.
