Snow Climb  Sucess!

We started the hike on the (still impassable due to snow) Imogene Pass road and it was a casual 6.2 mile round trip with 3,200 feet of elevation gain. A southeast facing, 1000ish foot couloir delivered us to the East Ridge a quarter mile from the summmit. The couloir started out at about 30 degrees but gradually steepened to 40+ degrees in the upper portion. We descended the East Ridge.

So, I gave a try to find a pass on the ridge, it starts nicely and eventually becomes really technical. I chose to return - raining slightly, super exposed 5th class terrain. Descended into Imogene Basin and the weather cleared up again, so climbed up straight from here over some 4th class rock, traversing on a scary terrain and reached the summit when it started to rain hard.
