solstice mt angeles ONP 6/21

Victor bowl (NE Mt Angeles): a little sun-cupped, a little icy in the evening, but skiable to the bottom (1200-1300 vertical). Worth the haul up Switchback TH: deer, goats, grouse, hare, no skiers. Perfect solstice solitude. N

Yes, they earned it. I wanted to see, among other things, if the big north gully is accessible on snow from the east (the western approach is gone). The answer is No, there is a steep brown section directly under the notch, 300-400 ft, maybe 500 before the heat wave is done. But that gully is still OK, top to bottom. N

Idiotically, I tried to get there from Hurricane Ridge the same day. Learned my lesson the "long" way.

Runcle and I orbited Mt A counterclockwise a couple of weeks ago, and the western approach (i.e., our descent) was spotty; but you never know unless you try it. Starting from Switchback TH it's a grunt but straightforward and the bowl should hold for another couple of weeks. N
