Twin Chutes Saddle, 4/11/06
View from the lower summit ridge in ESE direction - it was about the first moment we could see something nice, after complete whiteout on ascent.

Note the fresh cornices in the near (West) chute. We avoided temptation to drop straight there, and it was a very good decision in hindight, because a more tame Mill Fork saddle slope avalanched.
