 North Star Mountain - Std. Ridge from Hoosier Pass   

One very cold traverse of the ridge that comprises North Star Mountain. 7:45 am start and full day out, no avi issues but lots of snow devils, numb fingers, chilly toes . . . and a summit . . .

Yeah, H, we‘ve done that peak a couple of times in the winter and it is ALWAYS blowing. What a stellar day, though, with the clear blue skies. Way to get ‘er done. Thanks for posting! Happy trails!

You know it, one of those days the tears just about flow when the circulation comes back to the hands . . . but . . . you gotta do ‘em.
