Ascent Trip Report

Awesome day out with Chelsea. Turn off the trail towards the bowl of tears was tricky to find but stay right and you will get on the trail. Bowl of tears is beautiful and entrance to the couloir is hidden but not hard to find. Good snow conditions and full coverage once in the couloir. Long hike but so worth it. Started at 4am, summit at 11am, back to car at 3:30pm
