do the east slope route?
Yup! Started on the Tobacco Flats 4x4 road. Went up the right side of the east slope, nice climb and did a little bit of class 3 on the way up to avoid bothering with putting on the crampons. Then along the ridge (actually the north side of it) to the true highpoint 1/2 mile to the south (needed crampons briefly), and descended another 1/4 mile south of that.
I attempted that route in 2000 but had to turn back 'cause of steep snow and I had no gear. I got back to the bowl and glissaded down and did McGee Mtn.
Yeah... I did break out the ice ax on the way up. Time for a second attempt eh?
