Perhaps my longest approach walk ever for turns. Three hours to 3200' just below the viewpoint I finally had enough snow to begin skinning. After about 1500' alone, the conditions and last week's avalanche deaths suggested a turnaround. The skiing was ok, but the views were unbeatable.

Awesome. Still living in your tent, or did you meet people?

Great photo. Jill and I stopped a long way before your climb and did not carry the skis. Smiley
