6am at Monroe Park and Ride.

Moderate pace, but this has quite a bit of gain. Bare trail to Eightmile Lake, then we somehow cross the lake outlet, so bring water shoes to wade across. Then a traverse part way around the lake, and a snow climb up the south couloir to the ridge (which I saw a week before this trip). Probably some snow on the final ridge, or could be bare ground to the summit.
