As a supplement to RJansen and Exiled's notes: Gaining the ridge earlier seems better than later once out of the trees. A delay in gaining the ridge (or an early left turn on descent) requires crossing sketchy snowfields with mixed talus and boulders and was no fun for anybody. Please see RJansen's TR!
