I attempted the West Ridge route, but never really got that far past the dam before turning back. The road is plowed to the old Monte Cristo TH, then it's snowpack to treeline, after that the road is mostly dry to the dam. I got maybe 350 to 500 yards past the dam before giving up, took me too long to get to this point and I really wasn't interested in a 14 to 18 hour day the way I was moving, just wasn't my day today. Too bad, it was a great looking day for a climb.
