We got a later start than intended from the winter trailhead and began by slogging up the unplowed McCullough Gulch Road. This adds about 4 miles and 350' to the round trip up Atlantic, for a total of around 10.5 miles and 3000-3100' of climbing.

Shortly after leaving the summer TH, we began skinning below Quandary's impressive north face. This face usually does not hold much snow, but this year it's FAT. Some couloirs on the lower north face.
