June 21-22, 2014, Adams

Team Carla headed up for a memorable celebration of Carla's hundredth Bulger peak. Balloons, tiaras, a tutu, champagne, a cake, and more accompanied the merriment from parking lot to summit.  About half of our party witnessed a marriage proposal at the summit as our descents began. 

The entire mountain is skinnable on continuous snow from just above 6k via the "summer route" up the Crescent. Smooth most everywhere, cups and runnels to ~1' down low. The chutes were reported to be in great shape, but our camp at the Lunch Counter led us southward.

Thank you all for a great gathering! Carla -- what's next?!

Edit: Friends found a traction aid in the Chutes, and we found a distinctive Nalgene below the Crescent; PM with an accurate description, and we'll send them your way.

I chatted with some of your group at Pikers Peak and again at the summit. Here's a photo of the revelers at the summit. It looked like good times were being had by all!
