Counterclockwise starting at the Rim Village lodge. Morning started out with clear skies and temps in the 20s.  1-2 inches of new snow on the 4 southern and eastern peaks which was manageable and covered up all the scree.  Once I started the climb up the 3 western peaks, clouds and wind from the northwest rolled in, and there were much heavier drifts of snow.  I used the road as much as I could on the west side to avoid the heavier snow.  Very unique and challenging FKT!

Kedric! I love you man! Congratulations! 

Thanks, Jason!  You created an amazing route and a cool way to see Crater Lake from all angles.  I hope more folks get after it!
