Thanks for the report MOCKBA. Glad the slab didn't take you down with it. It sounds like a fun peak to do in the spring. I'll have to add it to my list.
even though you had bad weather. I didn't know it was possible to lose sight of Grizz ... in fifty yards.
I climbed the peak in December 2000, but we did it as an overnightner, camping not far below the Mill Fork saddle. It was stable for us, but a huge slab released just above the saddle a week before (according to the climbers that set it off).
It was actually iced up for us, on sections of the ridge, and I wish I had my crampons (I had only an axe).
I've been there in spring before, probably 3 years back, we followed a ridge separating Mill Fork from the Chutes and it was bad sh*t w/o crampons. And a portion of the summit ridge was nearly as bad. Nothing of the kind on this year's tour though. If you noticed I had a very tentative snowshoe and even that was good enough.
