After getting down it was time to pack up and move camp, but not before taking some time to dry gear out.
One last look at the scenery (this is dragontail peak on the left, and yes there is a ski route down the face you are looking at). Colchuck is on the right and the Colchuck Glacier separates the two.
With camp moved closer to Stuart we only had a short approach before we were ascending the Sherpa Glacier.
Fridgid conditions on the north side gave way to sunny warm conditions on southeast facing terrain.
Just a little more bootpacking to reach the East Summit.
Time for more scenic skiing.
Back to the darkside for more glacial pow.
On the last day we skied a line on Argonaut, there was weather coming in and the snow wasn’t very good so the cameras never came out. We packed up camp and headed out. The deproach was a skin followed by a long winding trail ski out. Some road skiing topped it all off. A little melt down lower meant we couldn’t ski all the way to the car but we weren’t too far off.
Truly a great trip. I only would have changed one thing, next time I’m not going to bring a leaky sleeping pad. Man that was a real pain.
