Ascent Trip Report

Ski ascent in 4:09. Headed down to skiers right having great fun, remember skiing by tower and trail on markers skiers left, but it turned out to be the route from Climbers Bivuoac, I had never dropped into that basin before. Became quite disoriented, traversed back until I finally figured things out. Will need to explore over that way some more.
