Early on, went up toward crater but got too icy, decided to try again later

Since the snow had softened up we decided to try for the crater again. Before the boiler plate chicken head wind-whoops were making it too dangerous.

Still had to hammer pretty hard to make it up, hard to hang on

Made it all the way this time. I had to pin it in reverse to stop after I turned around.

Parked at the wilderness boundary edge and walked up

Crater at 9,800ft

We had the only snowmobile tracks above Big House, around 7,500ft

The bump to the top right is Grant Peak, 10,768ft

What it looks like from there, took last year in March
