Started from Saddlebag in the morning. Snow patches covered the trail made it slow going till I got past the lake and found a tricky creek crossing. As I made my way towards North Peak's North Couloir I was breaking through waist deep in places and was actually in doubt that I can make it to the base. But I did! Earlier approach would make things more fun. Climbing in couloir was easy and scrambling the North Ridge of Conness in both directions, as well as West Ridge and downclimbing NW Ridge of North Peak was a lot of fun. Least amount of hiking for more classic scrambling anyone can wish for. There is a lot of room to improve on time. Since I was going for OKT, I was not in any rush. :)
