Started at trailhead about 10, no rush got us to summit around 1:20.   Lounged for a while.  Was a pair of skiers ahead of us we chatted with at the lake.  A pair of odd hikers who were glissading down feet first with crampons on (yikes!)  and the woman with a skirt/shorts 😵. Bet that was chilly.

Peak skied well.  Gully to Headlee Pass was the most filled-in I've seen in years so was good.   Melted out cornice at top took some doodling to get around.   Raging stream crossing was spicy.    Would advise getting out earlier than us as temps headed up this week, but still a nice tour.

Nice bumping into you guys! Great day out on what might be my last day of the season with the forecasted scorching temps! Couple photos:
