Will anyone be on the peak around then? I'm looking for someone to rope up with.

Probably DC. I may have found someone but am definitely still looking and wouldn't mind more than 2 if this does work out.

I only got a little ways above Ingraham flats because one of our partners became sick on the way up. I saw a crevasse on the way up to the flats, snow conditions were very solid and the success rate seemed high when weather was good. Also there was snow all the way to the parking lot.

Nice, thanks.

Carbo,

If you're interested, send me an email at celestialsuspire@yahoo.com. I can tell you about my experience/etc, which is much, much more than the climbers' logs I've "signed".

Conditions were pretty much ideal. It could have something to do with the high snow pack this year (over 900 inches at Paradise!).
