Ascent Trip Report

Great ski peak! Booted up the north face of the peak to the false summit at 6550'. Left the skis here and did one running belay section over a knife edge gendarme and continued along the snowy ridge to the summit. Beautiful sunny day and amazing view from the summit. Had an amazing 2100' ski run down the north face in 6 inches of powder. Awesome turns.
