Beautiful valley, surrounding peaks and views, but really ugly scree slog up the SW slopes. Hands pulling on loose tiny scree for most of this route. Last signature was Splattski. Dropped down and then over to the base of Big Basin Pk- lots of snowfields all around. Sunny, Breezy 65F.
Started the morning off on snowshoes, got snowed on, then crampons, got sunshine on the summit. Cold: 15° ? And windy at times. Snow varied from old suncrust to powder, and sometimes a combination of both. Parked at the PK Pass trailhead in about 6-8" of snow. Excellent day overall with Rob and Matt. Boisedoc was last signature in the register. Trip report
