via Pearl  Sucess!

Climbed "West Pearl" (aka "Oyster") along with Pearl from the Pearl Pass Road staring around 10k in Castle Creek. Connecting ridge wasn't too bad, some loose parts but not to difficult. Descend the north slopes (loose in places) back to the road and out.

Second ascent on 5/30/16 with Rachael, summit ski descent. Skinned to saddle with Pearl (not as steep as it looked) and them up the ridge, back down the north slopes. Fun descent.

collecting another pearl  Sucess!

added-on "west pearl" after a gentle snow climb on pearl mountain. the connecting ridge between the two was pretty straight forward even with the quickly warming snow leading to some nasty postholing around rock outcropping.

Ridge from Pearl Mountain

Traversed ridge from Pearl Mountain which was fairly trivial. Descended the Northeast Face, nice glissading.

Climbed the Northeast face and snowboarded from the summit down a North face couloir.
