Still nice dry winter powder on upper Rubicon Peak. Great coverage. We parked at the dead end, as did 3 other cars by the time we got back. No BS parking tickets as of 12 noon.
trees are still holdin snow, which means there's still good powder skiing conditions.
Logan climbed up the north side of the rock summit. Fully rimed and sketchy. I went up the north west side. I haven't scouted around too hard, but this seems to be the easiest. It's not easy, and with ice on the rock it required some delicate moves in ski boots. It's really exiting to go up there on top, and you can just barely fit 2-3 people.
Yes, Logan went up without gloves. Damn! We downclimbed my route and I threw up my gloves to him.
Desolation looks well covered. Dick's Peak on the left.
