Our first mountaineering trip of the year. Just a single day, but a good one. The West Lions has taunted us for years. At the top of each Grouse BCMC Grind haul we were almost always greeted by views of the Lions. Not being able to get good friend Larry Marshik out since Whitney, the Lions represented a scramble for him. As a winter ascent, it is no scramble.
