Lots of reports from the Vesp, but here's another.

Had to work and study Friday/Saturday so Sunday it was. The initially ok forecast quickly turned wet. Headed up the Vesper getting to TH by about 7:30. Inspired by the recent ski boot marathon, WillE decided to rock his ski boots from the car.
Got off trail at the river and had a very spicy crossing. Vis was 200' with a  nice mist and temps hot enough to sweat ballz.
Snow starts at the base of the Headlee pass basin below morning star. Skinned from there with two sections of booting due to the classic 4inch slush push off.

Got up the upper section quick. Skied great, but could only see a couple hundred feet. Very cool options, wish I could have seen more of them.

Awesome wet cascade day.
