Alan-Yes. You can see the east face and the ridge line running along the left (south) side of the face. That is the route. A nice glissade awaits those who perservere just below the summit on the return. Quandary reminds me of the old double slides you'd ride down in the funhouse at Lakeside Amusement Park in the 60s and 70s.
The snow looks good in this picture. If the dumps persist and the wind abates, you and Barry will have your snow shoe wish granted. Jim-Great picture!
