We tried a similar route in similar conditions once, and couldn't go back against the wind. Ended up having to face the snow wallow in the Gulf.
Better than being dead (as far as we know).
She probably had no idea that she could do the Gulf wallow having no knowledge of the area.
I'm not focusing here on the particular weather situation that this unfortunate woman from NYC found herself in ten days ago up there near Madison. But people are naive or "misremembering" if they think that a person can do a one-day, long distance (twenty miles) peak-bagging traverse above tree-line in the Presidentials when it is blowing 100 mph and the raw temperature is below zero. IT CAN'T BE DONE.
