Ascent Trip Report

Skiing with friends at Timberline, then a trek to the top of the Triangle Moraine from the Palmer snowcat. Perfect conditions for booting up; awful for skinning or skiing down. Thankfully I left my skis at the top of Palmer, then skied down and had the run all to myself!

I ran into a single climber (late in the day) on my ascent, and another person skinning up on my descent, but I had from 9000' up all to myself.
