Well, we need more snow really bad. The palmer chair is open at timberline but I'm not ready to pay for boiler plate. We hiked up on the west side of the palmer chair and headed for illumation rock. We were well rewarded for our work. The snow was about two inches of confectitures sugar on a firm base. Very FUN, Getting back down is still very challenging though. We did manange to pick our way down to just above the lodge but it is very thin, Think SNOW and it will come.

Have FUN
