Things were much warmer this time. Stan and I headed back to Pilot Creek to get on the Unnamed Left route before avy conditions worsened. You definitely needed skis to get to the base,unless you like to wallow. We found the base never wanted to touch bottom, but the chandeliers consolidated to a nice, solid hanging pillar.

I've had a jones to get back into that area - mostly for the peak in the summertime. That's a very nice looking climb. -Olin
