Climbed the north face from our base camp at 10,000 feet, situated between two terminal moraines. We had the place to ourselves. On summit day we left about 3:30 am, without crampons because of the deep snow from the storm the day before. Steps had to be kicked all the way. We summited about 9:00am. Beautiful view at the top with a smell of sulphur. We glissaded most of the way down - it was a blast in the deep snow!
