D5- Pigeon Mountain fourth Annual Trip

I plan on making it to the real summit of Pigeon Mt. But if we get avalanche conditions or strong winds we will go to the south peak. I make it a loop down from the real summit. This part is off trail.

It will be a snowshoe or winter scramble/ hike if we don't get to much snow.
