My first ascent was in July, 2001, and my second was in May, 2003. While the May ascent was done in snowshoes and our group was able to ski the descent, I inquired worse weather on the summer ascent. A minor blizzard hit above 13,000 ft., proving that you can never be too prepared. The east ridge is an excellent first timers winter ascent on a 14er.
