Trip: Himal Hoody - Southside-Old Chute
Took a spur-of-the-moment run up the SS this morning. Left T-line about 3AM, with very little wind and lots of stars out. Good snow conditions up the chute with an established bootpack. Virtually no wind on the summit at 7:30 AM. You can't beat that for the last day of winter!!
There were a few groups up there, but not as many as I expected given the weather forecast. Thought I was off-route for a few minutes when I arrived at the Hogsback and nobody was there...
It warmed up quickly, so if you are thinking of heading up tonight, you may want to catch it early. Stuff was starting to come down as I descended the Chute at 8:30 or so.
DVR the NCAA tournament and go climb.....
I didn't upload any photos 'cause I think everbody knows the route, but let me know if you have a burning desire...
