Road gated 1.3 miles below the summer TH. Boot pack or dirt to the headwall below the lake. Above head wall flotation is helpful. Crampons needed for the couloirs on the north slope. Avy danger is patent: the storms last week plus the high winds later in the week loaded the north slope from 12,500 to 13,900. Snow was waist deep and higher at these elevations. Long, variable glissade back to the basin above the lake.
