    I've accessed everything from the peak 5 gate. (Not Square top because I don't think it is ever safe.) it can be done. it is a lot longer slog and you need to go on the back side of the ridge and top out to avoid cornice exposure. Just follow the path of the crest but higher.
    It will cut out 90% of people because it is a 25 minute slog to the top rather than a five minute slog. Some people will still die. It is backcountry and there are enticing tracks laid down right through the hart of the slide zone every time it snows for everyone in the resort to see.

    But, we still have access, even if it pushes a lot more people into the zone that I selfishly want kept to myself and my kids.

    A bit more.
    I don't think anyone is accessing the ridge from a gate for anything from square through Condor. That is being ducked with plausible deniability and we all know the access points

    I always laugh when people say stuff like this. The majority of kids barely take their first step before turning 1.
    I ski 135 degree chutes switch to the road.
