Ascent Trip Report

Ran the ridge from Mailbox with the usual suspects (Mark, Steve, & Sean -- and RFG1 & RFG2). It took about 50 minutes (each way) to make the traverse. The traverse consisted of a mix of rock scrambling (including a couple of class 3 moves that got your attention, especially with crampons on), soft snow, and hard snow. 3 of us were in crampons and one in microspikes. In places the cornices were rotting out and I would not have wanted to make that traverse in the afternoon of a warm day with the current snow conditions.
