Ascent Trip ReportGet there early if doing on a weekend. Alpental Lot was full at 9:30am. Bright side.. not a single one of them was on Denny.
I followed Xiulan Hu’s gps route. Followed a service road/trail to the right of Sessel lift. From there I followed the lower international and upper international runs. There’s a decent bootpath up until the boulder field. Hop boulders up to the notch and then hang a left and hop some more boulders up to the ski patrol shack. Summit block is short but a fun scramble. Wedged myself up a small chimney and then easy going to summit.
Took Edelweiss Bowl down to lifts and then followed the cascade traverse run for awhile. There’s piping leading the way and a decent bootpath. Left that and did a bushwhacky traverse back to the top of the Sessel lift and met up with my path up. About 4 hrs RT
