There was no attendant checking passes so I wrote my name and reservation number on paper and placed it on my dash. Seems like an odd system.

Entire route is snow free. We accidentally got off route ascending and descending the 2800 ft of suck....lesson learned was if you're looking for a better trail down, there isn't one. You must endure the suck.

Incredible peak!!!

I met a fellow climber up there a month back that had done the descent 14 times in a summer. Major SUCK!

It does. But this mountain at least makes it very much worth it.
