Continuous snow from the 2b road split to the summit. Firm enough to boot at 7am today without punching through at all. I'm a softboot splitboarder and move a bit quicker on foot than skinning, so I did that for a bit to pump out some mileage on the road quick.

Skin up from summer th wasn't too bad, it's possible to keep the incline mellow with meandering, but we opted to basically just point it straight up.

Had planned for a more direct line from the summit but wasn't comfortable with the wind loading on the slightly steeper terrain around 13600'. Headed down the southwest ridge about 250' vertical before dropping southeast for some really really good turns.

Once back down to 11600, the snow was sloppy and sticky (at about noon). It made the ski out pretty awful to say the least. And I had fresh wax.
