11/04/11 Magnum's Slippery Slopes

This is my first time visiting Magnum and the first backcountry riding this winter. We skinned up from the Sunburst parking lot and followed Magnum's North ridge. It was pretty wind-scoured and Icy. I came close to sliding pretty far on a moderate angled slope. It would have been nice to have some split crampons and a whippet pole. This was a good way to go this early in the year though, so we only had to go through the alders once. We ran into some brush and a small creek on the down track, but nothing too heinous.
