With the poor forecast for Rogers and elsewhere we went for a jaunt up July Mt. to do some glacier rescue and travel practice. In the early morning hours snow was dry at 1200m in the shade but rising temperatures quickly made everything shmoo up to 2100m. After practicing rope work in a corniced wind bowl on the summit plateau we descended the prominent south facing avy path back to the snowmobile trail. Snow was surprisingly decent with shreddable shmoo. Some light drizzle on the way out.

"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."
