Although listed as the West Ridge, given this is an early season alpine adventure, I am planning to leave the West Ridge early and make a traversing ascent of the North Slope.  This will give us beta for the glissade on the way back. 

Additionally, we'll take bikes and will push them up the road and leave them at the point where the trail up the West Ridge leaves the road, and will coast back to the cars.
