Windy day out  Sucess!

From Cari Lake, I climbed South, West and North summit then return to Cari Lake in 7.5 hours. My route went directly to the near eastern ridge of South summit and followed the ridge closely to North summit. Then I descended a chute with mucho loose rocks and crossed several snowfields to the saddle between South and West summit. Then traversed back around to lake. The North summit could rightfully be called Jenga Mountain. The knife ridge was scary.

North Summit  Sucess!

From the lake across the southwest saddle to the north summit. Windy day! The knife ridge to the north summit was much enjoyed.
