Ascent Trip ReportThis was an attempt on Helen Buttes that we turned around due to time and not-wanting-to-die constraints. There was a fair amount of new snow, we could see pinwheels and avalanche debris on the route above us, and we opted for a safe return to the car. Still a nice day. Ran into snow around 3500 feet, walked the last mile or so of the walk in snowshoes.
