Against the Dawn

Craig's rope team arrives at the top of Crystal Pass, the true summit is to the left up a steep snow slope, a minor crag on the 5 finger ridge is to the right. During the early season when the bergschrund is covered in snow you can come directly up the snow dome and straight up this ridge. Given the fact that a gaping maw of a bergschrund was open, we had to cut through 5 Finger Ridge and around the backside.
