|Ben leading the charge.|
After years of scrapping up just one or two other skiers, this year's Warren Wallowfest came together with a whopping 9 participants. Kind of an unwieldy group, but I think everyone had fun. I certainly did. The Missoula crew rallied at 6 am, and we met the Bozeman crew at the trailhead. From there we busted out the standard hike to lower Carpp lake. The group splintered during the approach to the upper lake, but regrouped at the base of the peak. From there, we topped out by a combination of skinning, booting, and rock scrambling.
Half of the group skied the standard North face route, and the other half skied the direct summit route. Nick coined the direct line the Warren Wiggler, which I fully endorse. The downclimb was tedious, and it took us well over an hour to descend the Wiggler.
