Ascent Trip ReportLeft Idaho 3:30 PM Thursday, arrived at the Bunny Flat TH Friday morning at 2:30 AM. Slept a few hours in the front seat of the car then set off at around 6:45 AM.
I'd say the Avalanche Gulch route is well on its way to being out for the year. No snow until 9600', then firm icy snow above. Crampons were nice. Witnessed two people take about a 500 foot slide on the icy snow. Also a few spontaneous rockfalls right onto the route. Misery Hill was a slog as expected, the altitude was affecting me quite a bit above 13k. Calm pleasant summit.
Snow had softened enough for a nice glissade on the way down. Back to the car at 2 PM then on to Eddy for the evening.
