Early Morning Ymir Bowl

I went out early this morning to test my ankle out on some mountain terrain - I chose a line up Ymir Bowl that was almost all snow and had hopes of reaching the notch/col on the north ridge between the summit of Ymir and the bump locally known as Half Dome.  The sun was already peaking out up there and I knew it would be great to get up to 2300 metres and enjoy the sun and views of the surrounding mountains. 

But, I was slow, and, after 800 feet  my foot began to ache.  With some reluctance, I turned around and carefully kicked steps down.  The snow was actually in awesome condition for glissading, but that seemed kinda dumb, even to me.
