This was a great winter climb with a short semi-technical ice climb in the middle followed by a long climb up steep snowpack to the summit. The face of Colden ends in a significant cliff at the bottom so experience with self-arrest, ice axe, and crampons are often a nessessity. We approached from Meadows Rd by ski which made the return much more enjoyable than in summer.
