Went up Chickadee Peak this morning. Typical spring conditions-hard and crusty in the AM gradually softening in the warm sun. Summited around 10AM which felt like a good time given the warming. A couple small slides observed off extreme solar terrain. Some nice corn found on descent interspersed with crusty and grabby sections.
