Ascent Trip Report

We hiked in from Cascade River Road on Friday morning with skis and snowline started around 4200ft near the bottom of the boulder field. We camped out, then climbed Eldorado Saturday. I was apparently the first one up in a while, since the top was a sharp knife edge ridge I had to scoot along like I was riding a horse.

We skied to Klawatti Col for camp, then climbed Austera the next morning. There was a huge quadruple cornice near the top! We skied down and around to Primus, then back to camp and out on Sunday.
