Info: Due to the snowstorm moving in, we cut short our stay in Ruby by eliminating Pigeon and Turret, and getting Monitor-Thirteen-Animas early before packing out. With headlamps, we explored the headwall beneath Thirteen-Monitor saddle and the third gully (closest to Monitor) is the one that goes at class 3-4, rather than mid-5. 
Route: Ruby Basin

Info: Spent a lot of time route finding. There were a couple cairns in places that didn't make much sense and cause wasted time backtracking. The crux was the down climb we used to reach the Peak 13 saddle which was very exposed and required extra caution. There probably was an easier way, but we didn't feel like climbing back up to find it.
