Nice Josh!     2010-04-15 13:50:49
You did all that before our training last night?!

Oops.     2010-04-15 13:53:32
No, I did that the 12th not the 14th. I‘ll have to fix that in the trip report.

You may be the first one up this route in months. I gave it a go twice and turned back both times by waist deep snow. Excellent trip report and photos. Bernie

for best posthole of 2010 so far, way to get after it.

Do you think it is skin-able yet? I‘m not so concerned w/ a ”rockin” ski descent but I prefer that as my snow-travel mode and it does make the descent quicker even if it isn‘t horribly exciting skiing. Hopefully that could help speed me up and maybe miss a bit of that chest-deep postholing :-) Great job and thanks for the TR.

It‘s skin-able up to Devil‘s playground. After that I don‘t think it work out very well. However I don‘t do AT so I don‘t know for sure. The ski down from Devil‘s would be pretty nice. That side usually is a rock garden, but this year it‘s filled in pretty nice.
