Trip Report

After navigating some interesting terrain along the pass at the head of the valley between Sheep and Horseshoe (@ N 50 5.802, W 114 20.400) the trip just became a bit of a slog. We had to put up with snow that generally held our weight and than collapsed past our knees or deeper without warning!
