2016-08-20  Route: West face / South Ridge
Posted On: 2016-08-20, By: Unknown
Info: Above the spot where the tundra gives way to dirt & rock, there's a fair amount of loose scree and loose talus on the face. Once you get to the south ridge, it's a fun scramble up and over many spires and false summits. In all honesty, the difficulty could be eased by dropping below ridge proper on the east side for a bit.

2012-06-02  Route: SW/NW ridges

Info: Ascended W-facing couloir before intersecting SW ridge of Snow, began traversing to Valhalla, bailed due to impending weather. Ice axe and ‘pons used since we hauled them up the annoying approach, but not worth the weight - trailrunners would work fine with a bit of route-finding (axe would also be prudent). Deluge Lake trail is mostly snow-free. A few minor patches hinder following the trail in one section, but it isn‘t too bad and now there are footprints. Upper basins are mostly snow-free. A moderate couloir up Snow is the only one holding anything in the basin; the rest are patchy or dry. Couloirs on Valhalla/Grand traverse are non-existent from Deluge. The SW ridge (class 3ish) is mostly dry with a few snowy gullies to cross. A bit of snow to ease the descent on the way to Valhalla. The trail that hits the saddle from Deluge Lake (still iced) is dry. The rest of the traverse looked mostly dry. The Gore Creek side held a bit more snow, but not much. Valhalla from Deluge is dry. E aspects seen from Snow were also dry. Pictures: https://picasaweb.google.com/105978537438093356597/SnowandBard06032012# image
