Description

Note: The southern ascent requires proper avalanche techniques and procedures.

WATCH FOR LOW FLYING A10 (Warthogs) : ) ... We had our avalanche senses on high alert while traveling this route when an A10 over flew the area sounding like an avalanche. The terrain is steep, so be sure to use proper technique for traveling in this area.
