I was just up there two days ago and after a recent snow dump the ridge was way too dangerous to attempt. Massive couloirs, 100mph winds, etc. We were postholing and bushwhacking all the way up to the ridge so we definitely got a phenomenal work out anyway! I will try again in summer or maybe go up the southwest ridge.
Makes for a good winter route, though you are exposed to wind and weather for quite a long time along the ridge.
Saw two couples on this route, got stuck in scree, very beautiful, but hard.
Great views on this route. We didn't see anyone until we got to the summit!
No sign of anyone else. Definitely a long time above treeline so watch the weather. Beautiful.
Great way to climb Mt Yale. No other folks on this route.
