As we neared the head of the South fork, the weather took a turn for the worse, with increasing winds and light snow, and we were debating the merits of bailing by the time we gained the northwest flank of the peak. I was able to convince everyone to keep poking upwards, and we continued bootpacking and talus hopping up into clouds. Eventually, we summited via the normal Northwest ridge.

What an enjoyable ski route in an immaculate alpine basin.
