A successful bid of the Avalanche Gulch route mid-June. After a three hour hike from the Bunny Flats trailhead, we camped below the tree line at Horse Camp (7780′) before an ‘easy’ second day up to Helen’s Lake (10,400′). After a 1 AM ‘Alpine Start’, we summited at 9:00 AM. We got back to Bunny Flats at 6 PM. Great conditions throughout. Matthias and Ian provided the expertise. Newbies Andy, Marty and Andre joined for the fun.
