Way to get those peaks done so early in the day. Sounds like you might be nearly done with the Sangres by this weekend huh?

If you climb early in the day, and there were freezing temperatures the night before, this will help you alot. Thea avalanches this time of year are mostly wet slides, but i would suspect that by memorial day you will still want your crampons and ice axe, and the knowledge that goes with such tools. If you dont know how to use them, then perhaps you should think about a different peak.
