Hooked up with Scott Otterson for his annual ski day. He's back to Germany to work on wind power next week. Also, along for the tour was Greg Louie. With no real agenda we headed up the commonwealth valley. We got sucked over towards Guy Peak and found an interesting ascent route through the cliffs to attain Cave Ridge. Climbed to the high point of Cave Ridge then dropped North towards Mt. Snoqualmie before hanging a right back into the commonwealth drainage. More touring, than turning, but an excellent day in the woods.
