Ascent Trip Report

This was another ski trip. As there were multiple parties clamboring up the summit pyramid and dropping rocks on their way, we opted to let it go and just enjoy the ski down.

Though the weather was clear on the hike up, we set cravasse wands along the way -- and a good thing we did! -- on the ski down the clouds rolled in and we could barely see the neon orange wands directing us away from the gaping maws.
