PhotoDescr: I get panicky/bored with big snow routes and usually end up sprinting to the summit rocks for a rest. The race was made more easy this day as big "slurpee spouts" started forming all over the route and the big ol cornice towering over the route looked ready to sag in to gravity at any moment.

Regardless, this was a nice moderate snow route with easy access; about 500m of 45 degree snow. Too bad the rock sucks on the peak -- there's lots of it.
