Ascent Trip ReportTried to reach Revolution Peak, but there was far too much soft/unstable snowpack along the ridge to proceed past the crux (a knob). Climber's left of the knob (north side of the ridge) seemed doable, but it was wayyyyy too risky given snow covered trees and potential for getting pushed out of "moat" I was creating with my microspikes (I neglected to bring my crampons, as I thought it was going to be warmer).
