Up the steep part of Winter Lion Head was a intimidating due to the firm, icy snow under the fresh snow. Avoid if you aren't comfortable in sharp crampons and ice ax. I choose to come down the boot pack of Right Gully: steep, but soft from the sun. WLH is shaded and cool.
Easier and safer to ascend Lobster Claw or Right Gulley for now.
