Ascent Trip Report

At last, made the ridge traverse this winter from the college "M" to Bridger bowl. Hiked up before sunrise, gained the spine and could see east just as the sun rose. encountered wind on ridge (was expected, nothing too bad) and had minimal scrambling, sinking.. followed a bootpack all the way, baldy, saddle, right to the top of slushman's! ridge was closed cus of low snow year.. discussed hike with ski patrol. i think they were surprised to see me coming from saddle.
