Oops.

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

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.

Yes,

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.
