Inspired by your pictures, I set upon this hill on Saturday. I took a different route (traditional?) up and was surprised that i didn't see any tracks after knowing that you all did the same trip earlier in the week. It was just me and two dogs going up a very steep peak until we reached the top and saw where you summitted. My track was so exhausting that i assumed you MUST have picked a better route. Damn, I was wrong. So wrong. It was a nightmare coming across the avalanche field and then later down through all the knocked down lumber. The storm did a number on that side of the hill, whereas what I climbed up was completely unmolested. It must have added an hour or more and exhausted the three of us! Kudos to you guys for summitting that way. Fortunately, the views were great and the weather was perfect. No wind meant a nice lunch break at the top and made up for working my way over and under trees through scrub in the dark.
