Chair Peak - NE Buttress

Description:  Alpine Ice in Snoqualmie is finicky, so when the message boards say the conditions are good, it means you must go.  But it also means you won't be finding solitude when chasing trip reports.  This was the case on 12.12.09 when My father, Eric Docktor, and Gilbert Hoffman ventured up to Chair peak.

Is the trade-off for summit sunset worth the returning in dark?
