 Quandary: East ridge up - Cristo Couloir down   

I just wanted to get some beta out there.

The hike up was the standard slog

Little snow below treeline, or hard packed.

Hard packed above the treeline.

Tele/AT skins
Snowshoes
Sneakers/Yak trax
Boot pack

Descent in the couloir was good with the exception of 10' of side stepping across the rock band.

Photos to follow.
