Got up for a nice tour before the weather rolled in. Dan joined me for this trip. First up was Peak 10 and its south slopes. The snow was pretty lame. Kind of crusty and not worth the effort. So we made for the saddle with Crystal. Up we went and enjoyed buttercream snow down to the lake. The snow was awesome. Then we checked out a cool old cabin and made for the exit gully. Found a nice steep section with good snow. Down below the lower lake it was corn to the truck. Fun stuff

Looking at Father Dyer, Crystal and Peak 10
