Warm temps and soft snow made this climb a bit more challenging. 2 of our team opted to turn back at the top of the Palmer. We took the Pearly Gates route to avoid the crowds. A few more crevasses had opened in the vicinity of the bergshrund and we placed pickets to protect the bridges. The remaining team of 4 took a quick break on the summit and then hurried down via Old Chute as the snow was getting softer by the minute. 11.5 hours car to car. All in all a good day on the mountain with a good team. Thanks to Bill for the solid assist.Members: Danneille Harris, Bill Lowder, Robert Oslon, Eric Thornton.
