We headed north off the summit down Silver Creek and wrapped around skier's left back to the standard route, which is what most parties I know of have also done. Heading over the East Ridge down into Avalanche Gulch is a creative line for sure, nice work! I'm assuming you guys stashed a vehicle?

Pioletski spied out another cool line off Yale that heads down Silver Creek Bowl for a few hundred feet, traverses skier's left, then heads down an obvious north facing couloir towards Kroenke Lake and lower Horn Fork. I'd love to check that line out someday.

yeah, we used a vehicle shuttle. Brought two cars, dropped one at Avalanche gulch and then drove the other to the Delaney/Denny Gulch TH. I liked it alot. It is always cool to traverse a peak like that and see several sides of it.
