Wildcat Traverse Apr 7
« on: 04/08/12, 10:14 AM »

quick recon at the summit of Roosevelt to check out environs to the west:


then a nice long april pow run down Holy Diver and we were soon climbing toward Caroline Pk.  Dropped into the northwest face for another fine descent:



looking back toward Roosevelt:



after a lunch/tanning session at Upper Wildcat Lake, made the ascent up Wildcat Holler to the ridge above Snow Lk, then up over Melakwa Pass and Bryant col to complete the figure 8.  Goods are holding up well in N-facing, watch the sluff on sun-facing steeps.

Awesome - I love that area.  Hard to believe all the goods that Snoqualmie holds, sometimes.
