    Mt Daniel

    hy did I want to do Mt. Daniel next? Four reasons...It stared us in the face
    during our long bivy on Stuart and looked wonderful.......I had tried it 17
    years earlier and got skunked by a was easy and after a few days
    in the "No mistake zone" on Stuart, something a bit less intense was a full day of exercise.

    After a rest day, we decided to do the peak as a day trip, starting 5 AM.
    Beautiful forest gave way to lakes and meadows that were covered in snow. This
    make route finding tricky. We landed in a wonderful snow basin, with the
    glacier's crevasses still not opened up. The snow got to a comfortable 35
    degrees slope. Here, we topped a pass and the route got serious for a short
    spell. We traversed steep, now above some gaping and overhanging holes.
    Crevasses are NOT human friendly country. Beyond, we hit snow firn and low angle
    talus, up to a lovely summit. We had the whole mountain to ourselves, the whole
    day and the views of the nearby mountains were great.

    Going down moderate snow slopes was quick, easy and fun. The ascent was in the
    4,500 foot range and the day took 11 fun filled hours. Just a lovely day!
