|"I'd rather be in the Oquirrhs'|
Once we got good views of the upper mountain it was pretty clear winds had been absolutely ravaging the place. Anything above tree line was scoured down to talus. No worries though, the chutes where in, the sun was out, and there wasn't a breath of wind.
From the summit we decided on a SW facing shot towards Pyramid Peak with the hope of climbing back up the back side (south side) of Jeff Davis and then hopefully skiing a NW couloir back into the upper cirque. We had a rope so decided to give the first pitch on the SW a nice hard ski on rappel. Our fears of instability (we hadn't touched this aspect) were quickly eased and we ended up finding corn shortly off the summit.
