Ascent Trip Report

Via Crystal TH. The road to Crystal was just recently cut through 3 major slide paths that left debris pile 20 feet tall on the road. Interesting place for sure, only a couple locals there this early in the season. Unable to drive past 2nd switchback above "town." Excellent refreeze, walked over Galena lake and did the S Ridge and down West Face before donning snowshoes for the now unsupportable slush in the June heat, still alot of snow up there in a transitional state, not consolidated in other areas as I would find on Pyramid Peak 2 days later. No evidence of anyone climbing on this side (or the other) recently.
