General Activity Notes (trail, approach, bike route, water route conditions, etc.):
General: We had a group of 12. 8am start. It was a very warm and sunny day. It was rated "considerable avalanche danger" on the W, SW, S, SE, and E slopes at all elevations...it was "Moderate" on the NW, N, and NE slopes at all elevations.
Ascent: 5.75 hrs. Our route was the NE ridge starting at the Annette lake TH. There was snow on the road, so we parked just over 1/8 mi from the TH. Once we got up to the Iron Horse trail, we followed it west until we passed the snow shed structure...the snow on the IH trail was hard.
