After a Peak 10 4th of july bowl sunset ski a few days prior, where I had seen a nice line on Democrat. We had been fishing the spillway and also had a line on Clinton and another pinner on a sub peak. With plenty of options and thinking we would be able to drive the 4wd road a few miles up to cut the round trip by at least 4 miles. We had a late start going followed by finding out we would not be able drive up the jeep road. Left the jeep at 8:20 ended up giving democrat a go instead of clinton or the pinner as the pinner looked a bit thin from a week ago. We were at the base of one of the coulys as 2 others were skiing, approx 11:00. We climbed the couly that had been skied with no problems puching through(deep summer snowpack) Traversing to the lookers right was puchy as the snow was thin but this lead to the best line availible. Skid the lookers right line in the early afternoon and back at the jeep by 3:30pm
