I needed that! Thanks. How was the drop into the pass, did you go down where the rappel lines are in the summer.
Yep, I followed the summer route down. Its very mild in the winter. Way easier than the summer. Going up Crown is steep and there is a long traverse across a steep slope. I dont think there are any cliffs below but I was Mr Cautious. Easy to get safe footing and easy to get good anchor with iceaxe handle in the soft snow.
