Strong work.   Looks like you climbed from Mazama Ridge?  Any holes opening up on the lower Glacier?

By far I liked that. Very nice from the start above Anvil.
I'm thinking watching somebody skiing in front is better than looking at somebodys ski tips for 5 min .

You hit it at my favorite time of day to ski that glacier (6ish in the summer). When then sun starts to get cut off by the ridge, that moisture on top of snow that might make things just a little suctiony gets factored out, it seems. Did you stop and look for iceworms?

Traverse out of the ex cave valley looks really easy and smooth right now, maybe even good enough for snowboarding it.
