The plan was to head in with 5 days worth of food and see where we ended up. With an unsettled snow pack we knew the original route plan would be to aggressive for the current conditions so it was a question of making it through safely, staying high, having great views and good skiing.

Pass after pass we kept forging forward to the crux of the trip Pluto pass. Its a high pass up upright creek following a one sided canyon (hence the name?) and then a massive ramp.
Adolphus Cabin where we found a powder caulked shoot that brought us right down to valley bottom.
Adolphus we had our sights set on spending some time at the soon to be taken down Hargreaves Cabin. For allot of people it has a special place in there hearts and it was nice to pay tribute and say hi to the lonely pack rat that lives in the beams.
Now is the recovery beer, shower, burgars, shower, beer, beer routine at least for the weekend...
