Standard route up( minus snow) of course!
Lots of bushwacking and carrying skis. Finally made it to alpine. Thick fog most of the day. Finally got above it to enjoy some amazing snow. Dug a pit around 3000feet. ECTX. Was concerned about new/old snow interface but got no reaction. Lots of moisture in snow. 150cm over all. That said, glide cracks abound. EVERYWHERE! BE ON GUARD!
