No, I wasn't skiing..did that 20 years ago...just headed to work.. I check the snow conditions every day when I drive by...actually planning on climing that route when most of the snow is gone.

The Laural pic is from an old trip report I did a few years back.

:) yeah, it turned out that the snowy bottleneck halfway up the route had melted out in the 10 days since i took the most recent photo. i was hoping that it wouldn't have.... anyways, Jared and i climbed it yesterday...

FABULOUSSSS!!! climb..... a 3500ft sierra classic that is overlooked as a winter climb. i have to rate it as my fav mixed route in the sierra. will post pictures soon...
