May 1st Bear Peak climb

On the first day of May, I climbed Bear Peak (8459′ at the summit) with a friend during an epic snowstorm. It was the most wintery ascent I’ve ever done (of any mountain), and it happened in May. Boulder, I love you.

Just a week later all that snow was gone and I was back up on Bear Peak on a beautiful, clear day that looked completely different.
