Ascent Trip Report

It was -15 at the trailhead... Up the standard East Ridge, there was a great packed trail and we skinned all the way to the summit. Bluebird day but a little windy. We skied down Cristo couloir. The snow was crusty but good cover except for 100' of rocks near the top. First 14er for Ben and Patricia!
