nice hike dodging some smoky skies from OR wildfires. Amazing views from this setting. Couldn't help but notice all the braided trails and human traces; this area could use a little TLC - tread lightly!
Climbed it once as a kid a while but more recently climbed with my Avalanche 1 course with Eric White. We dug a snow trench high up on the ridge and found no weak layers.
...I proposed to my wife at Heart Lake, a few hundred feet below the summit.
