Farmed the slopes of this mountain for likely the last time this season as soon the road to the TH will have too much snow on it. Day started off almost sunny but then the high and low clouds began to stream in as we farmed our first lap off the glacier. Decided to do some exploring after finding the snow to be fairly stable and try to summit by heading up the northeast face. Got to the top, waved to our fellow harvesters on the northwest glacier below, and had my best October turns to date back to the car.

"As we all know, the true driving force behind every early morning wake up is not necessarily safety, but the overpowering drive to be sitting on a patio by 1 pm, intoxicated, and spraying loudly about the morning's adventure."
