Jarl (the guy in the video) seems to know these mountains really well.
Steve- Thanks! That was exactly what I was hoping to learn. I knew some faces tended to melt faster than others. I really have no desire to break trail or traverse a questionable slope.
I’m glad you mentioned the issues with the Dollar Lake trail. That was another option I thought of. I’ve camped at Dry Lake View before and it was a nice short hike to the summit in the morning. Of course that was in the summer. 🙂
Might try to get a weekday off and go up Vivian… maybe two days and spend the night at High Creek or something.
