We, Ryan Del Rosario and Alexander Roth-Glasscok and I had an awesome climb 10 days ago. Great weather and the route was in good shape! The 3rd/4th bail option below the summit to climber's left is covered with snow still. We went right to a corner and popped back to flat land stoked to put our boards on and shred the Mountaineer's Route. It was icy gnar but we had a great time!

Thank you! I climbed in Garmont approach shoes with my soft snowboard boots and Spark bindings in my backpack. Ryan had LaSportiva approach shoes and Alex wore TC Pro's.
