Ascent Trip Report

Deep snow from Powerline Trail to Little O’Malley gully; we took the rock rib to avoid avalanche exposure. From Little O’Malley we ascended the ridge to False Peak

This time of year, you should be comfortable using an ice axe and self-arresting; the route ascends steep snow slopes and two pitches in particular were nearly vertical including the final 100’ slope to the summit.

Use extreme care if snowpack is weak and/or unstable. We had great snowpack conditions on this day.
