Route & General Observations

Alder tour south of Bertha creek. Took photos of South face of Goldpan to show all the glidecracks. Only areas without glidecracks are the runs just skiers left of summit and Mistress. Note that the usual uptrack (col between Superbowl and Goldpan) has a glidecrack near the top. Consider either going up & over Superbowl or up the alternate uptrack.
