route info

Great route info. Looks quite a bit more difficult to climb in the winter/spring with the steep angles and changing snow conditions.

Re: route info

After having done the full massif ridge traverse in the summer, I'd definitely say that it is much more difficult with snow! An excellent snow mountaineering route in the Wasatch (although I would like it if there were a better approach than Cedar Ridge).



IMO, the most difficult part of the traverse during either season is bypassing those steep slaps in this photo. The snow began turning to slush by 11am, so it was fortunate that we were heading back down by then!

Re: great ridge

Happy to provide it. Hopefully this can get more people interested in the ridge, but also give them a better sense of how serious of a snow climb it really is!
