We pushed ahead a little further to the crux and found a place to dine and relax in the sun. Surprisingly, we were above the snow line at the top.
The sun felt warm, it was on the windy side and the temperature hoovered around +4 C. Once we came off the pass onto the main trail, we were back into the snow. By now it had become sticky and crystally, yet still perfect for a quicker decent in spots. Here I am taking the easy way down to join up with the others.
We started at a lower elevation of 1377 meters for this adventure but did a 671 meter gain to this point at the pass. I like to see the little graph on the bottom that shows how steep it is. I hope as the spring goes on and once the summer arrives that I can eventually get that elevation gain number up to four digits.
