Trip details on Orient Point: Kevin and I unfortunately ended up on the wrong ridge, we had intended to follow the ramblers downtrack in order to avoid any snow on the crux since it was still only mid March. Decided to turn around since it would be dark by 7PM and wouldn't have the necessary daylight to drive out of the North Ghost river. Even the ramblers route could have potential for snow still, so success was still not guaranteed if we had continued. Overall a great sunny and warm day for early March!
