Ascent Trip Report

We had to turn around due to treacherous snow conditions. When we reached the notch between the East and West Peak (true summit) and looked over to the other side we noticed a big cornice. The snow was too soft to place any protection. We decided to climb the East summit of Gunn Peak. When we looked over to the true summit we noticed that the entire ascent route was covered with unstable snow. No pickets or other protection gear would have provided sufficient protection. It would have come right out! We didn't see any tracks on Gunn Peak. Overall still a fun day. Will have to come back to complete it some other time.
