It's a long way up, but the trail from timpanooke is so low grade that you hardly notice that you're climbing: perfect for legs not used to carrying skis and boots on the backpack. Managed to ski down around 2000 vertical after a vertical climb of 4000. Probably the best time to hit this line is closer to memorial day. Then there would be enough snow to ski straight down the upper scout falls. Or, ski this line later when there's really nothing else left to ski..

Mostly just our ski in day. We did finagle a quick run on the bowl behind our camp near Cresent Glacier.

Pretty much just woke up and skied down to the car. Such a simple route finding task becomes quite challenging on the sprawling aprons and exponentially multiplying rivulets of a volcano. Route finding? What's that?
