Description

Jeff and I were leaving for Gannett Peak in a week and I wanted to be prepared.  I found another snow climb in a guidebook on Mount Edwards that I know wouldn't take me too long so I went back up to the Stevens Gulch Trailhead after several trips there this Spring.  Rather than continuing to the Lost Rat Couloir on Grays Peak, I turned left earlier and went up the Goatfinger Couloir on Mount Edwards.  After this I traversed over to Grays Peak and then returned to the trailhead.  I remember running into some mountain goats and the couloir was melted out near the top, which made for some loose scrambling.  The ridge between Mount Edwards and Grays Peak was longer than I had expected too.
