Trip Report

Kev Papke was getting close to his year-long, 50 peak fundraising effort and was in need of 4 peaks in 4 weekends in order to fill the 50 peak 'order'. The weekend of February 23/24 wasn't looking great for anything too aggressive and since Kev could only go on the 23rd our options became even more limited. I don't do ski mountaineering if avalanche likelihood is either 'considerable' or 'high', so any ski trips were pretty much out of favor.
