Description

We wanted to maximize our day in the Pass so we decided to complete the classic Avalanche -> Sir Donald traverse but extend it out a bit further to Young's ;) It's too much to describe in detail but the climbing is endlessly high quality and beautiful views throughout with difficulties to 5.4.

We had a few cruxes in the day including the crossing from Sir D to Terminal and the descent off the North Face of Young's but all in all, it was an excellent day in the mountains with an excellent partner! We carried 2x 30m ropes for rappels along with a small anchor kit, ice axes, and crampons.
