Ascent Trip ReportMounties trip, the plan was to do Lovers Lane, snow was not ideal (soft), so we opted for the Zipper instead. We topped out and decided to forgo the summit due to higher avy danger on South facing aspects. Steps all the way up the route made for easy climbing. Placed no pickets, they wouldn't have helped anyway... Due to rapid warming there was some sluffing dumping off the sun exposed sides and down into the couloir. A quick climb, left the parking lot around 9am, back by 2:30.
