Scrambling with Linda.  This was a good way to give my legs a beating so they know what's to come this season.  The hike up to Gunnery Pass was clear, but once on the North side there was snow that got quite deep at times.  Once to the creek we angled up to the NE ridge.  The final ridge looks more intimidating than it actually is.  Not a bad glissade back down to tree line, but given better snow conditions one could get cruising really fast.
