But I'm a beginner with mountaineering, but I'd do it in the summer. keep it in mind.
This sounds a lot like my trip yesterday, ladybugs and all (I've never seen anywhere near that many before), only you went down a different way (we went down the NE cirque, assuming we're talking about the same thing). But I recognized the undulating 5º-45º part, the postholing above that, and also found it slightly surprising that the trail doesn't top out on the low point of the ridge. The unicycle on a pogo stick part was funny.
