An easier skin in than going straight up the couloir.

Description

Start out on the Diamond Couloir Approach via old Gold Camp Road until you get to the ridge line. Follow the ridge line all the way up to the top of the couloir. The only problem with this ascent is that you don't have the opportunity to assess snowpack on the way up and if the snow is sketchy you'll have no choice but to retrace your path back down.

Overall, it's a fun skin up that is longer but much easier than going straight up the Couloir.
