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.

hubixClimb and ski descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 10, 2011


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.
