Nice camp, how I'd have done it
yep, but coupling the vestibule with a small snowcave for a cooking area gave us a nice protected space to cook and eat! I'll have to remember that trick next time I dig a tent platform into a slope.
super comfy bivy for me one time!! The wind blew hard, the clouds down right above me, and I slept so happy and snug that I didn't wake up til 11 am!! Then the lenticulars blew me down Avalanche Gulch around the Red Banks. Great day on Sargent's for sure!
Great write up and photo documentation!! Thanks!!
