Seemed like a bad idea.
Figured, what the heck. Give it a go.
heading down
Traveling down the S.E Ridge. It's filled in nicely!
Mason Lake
Boulders on the Old trail are filled in nicely too!
If you're interested there are halfway decent steps, as of today. Also, leave the Ira Springs trail thirty yards west of where I did. You'll avoid some blowdown in the first 1/4 mile. Cheers B! =

Nice trip! That boulder field looks way more fun than when we did it in May. smile.gif

For a good time call: 1-800-SLD-ALDR.

Hey, you did it! That's a lot of trailbreaking -- way to go.

My hunch on conditions paid off and I was able to stay in crampons from Ira Springs to the top. smile.gif Much more snow on the east side. Needed to switch to snowshoes coming down. Btw, the slight cornice at the top had formed from the north, opposite from usual.
