Ascent Trip Report

Set out with the goal of climbing Lover's Lane, rappelling into the Zipper, then topping out and descending via the back side. Due to a variety of ski gear issues for one of the people in our group, we got a really late start and ended up running out of time before tagging the summit. Snow conditions on Lovers Lane were great; we only ended up doing one pitch of snow at the very top to get to the rap tree (one picket plus several pieces of rock pro on the left side of the gulley). No need for a rope on the Zipper, although skiing was a bit icy.
