It's spring again and we decided to do our favorite spring climbing season kick-off summit - Buckley Mountain via Yeti. Last year we had a relatively large group, 7 people, but this year it was just me and Mikey. We're not exactly sure why but the snow was super soft and deep this time. We hit several walls of "mashed potato" snow that were really tough, slow going and sapped our energy. It was probably the slowest time to the top, but the view was as great as ever. The bob back down was good for the first 2/3rds, but then the snow got too soft. Also got some decent drone footage from the top and inside Yeti.
