My intent was to hike Whale Peak from Georgia Pass. However about 1/2 mile below the pass FR355 became too icey to continue... that is where I started hiking.

The road above my starting point was treacherously icey and I about busted my ass a time or two. With the exception of the icey road, it was a gentle 5 miles and 2400ft from my starting point to Whale's summit. The views of Guyot and the Tenmile ruled the day.

I opted for some light bushwhacking on the way back to avoid descending the icey road.
