Sun, 5/30/11 -- Iron-Bill's pass > Bill's-Gene's pass > Longs Pass (via peak SE of Longs Pass) with Anita, Will, Ted and Brad.  Pinned down for awhile by a graupel thunderstorm on the final ascent.  Skied to within 100' verts of Esmeralda TH.  Skied and walked est. 3/4 miles of road.  4300'+ verts

Fun smoo turns.  Birds ID'd include Mountain Bluebird (pair), Chipping Sparrow, Yellow Rumped Warbler, Hermit Thrush, Townsend's Solitaire, Dipper and Mountain Chickadee, plus the usuals.  Saw several parties going to and/or returning from Stuart, Fortune, etc.  Area should yield good touring for another few weeks.

Do you have some route info for these tours? I may be headed there next week. I am somewhat familiar with the Teanaway, but more in the Beverly/Bean/Standup creek areas.
