Thinking about running up this route as a more fun alternative to avalanche gulch.
How hard is routefinding? Both gaining the ridge, and the ridgeline before misery hill?
How much rock were you climbing versus snow? When do you think conditions will be best?

|Recommend high camp before summit at 11,800 feet. Also called the second window. A ski descent from here into Avalanche Gulch can be made.|
