Brutal slush-slog up from the valley. I picked up the left-hand ridge ASAP, and was rewarded with excellent class 3-4 climbing, but was too tired to keep going to Silliman. Trip report.
An enjoyable day from Camp Lamoille, tagging Mazama and Silliman as well. Trip Report
Snow conditions were a little sketchy, but it was a fun and challenging outing. The view from the top was remarkable! We found out later that people camping at the trailhead had watched us climb through a telescope. Neat!
