DebBloody Couloir - Left Fork  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 20, 2007

Deb

Solo climb - Totally beautiful couloir, hard frozen snow; perfect weather. Brought 2 axes for the right fork but after "shitting myself" over large rockfall, I opted for the "cheesy" route on the left. Loved it like cake on top! Descended by way of north ridge choss slide and into a rock chute, then down to the road; couloir frozen too hard to glissade. Had to park next to telescope hut due to undesirable road conditions for my pansy Xterra, so I got my good hike in as well. Pretty pleased with this mountain.

Went up with Sat with some good friends, great weather and conditions. Chaised Deb all the way up the coulior.
Great approach (if you can drive up that "repaired" road) got in early Sat so bagged Laurel Mtn the day before.

Climbed the Bloody couloir with Steve Larson. Short climb: around 4 hrs car-to-car. Were able to drive to the trailhead that goes to the Laurel/Bloody saddle. From there, took us about 2.5 hours to top out the couloir (did the right fork finish). We meant to descend the NE ridge towards Laurel/Bloody saddle, but took a wrong turn and ended up descending a scree slope.

Climbed this moderate snow gully with Miguel Forjan after a more strenuous day before on Humphreys. Easy climb, I can't wait to come back next spring with my skis.

Rick KentRoute Climbed: Bloody Couloir - Right Fork Date Climbed: July 24, 2005  Sucess!

Rick Kent

Had a great time going up the couloir (solo). The snow in the couloir was in great shape (not really any ice right now if that's what you're looking for). Wanting just a little more steepness I took the right fork and was pleasantly rewarded. Topped out 1 hr 15 minutes after starting up the chute. Used crampons & ice axe. Descended via the NE ridge and bagged Laurel Mtn on the way out. Probably should have brought a helmet for the chute due to potential rockfall but got lucky even with my late 11am start. Perhaps the biggest challenge is the drive in.

Started a bit late. Made it to the base of the snow/ice after an hour and a half of hiking. While getting crampons on there was MASSIVE Rock fall that strafed the entire couloir. Scary. However we decided that the chances of it happening again were very slim and worked our way up from safe point to safe point. Didn't end up using the rope we brought along and we intentionally climbed very fast. The top half was spectacular since the ice was only about 8 feet wide.

Matthew HollimanRoute Climbed: NE Ridge (ascent) / West Slopes (descent) Date Climbed: July 30, 2004  Sucess!

Matthew Holliman

Warm-up hike for the Sierra Challenge, up the NE Ridge and looping back via Bloody Lake. The loose scree/talus of the west slopes may have established a record for how far I could descend with one step; I slid down 7-8 feet with each step in places. I wouldn't recommend this side as an ascent route!

Snow Nymph

Parked near the trailhead, where the snow stopped . Crampons on and off. Hiked the NE ridge and dropped our packs/snowboards and skis at the NE chute. Dayhiked to the summit, hiked back to our gear and rode down the NE chute. Long hike for such a short ride, but it was fun!

Bob Burd

Led a group of eight to the summit of this easy summit (by the easiest route, anyway). We were climbing in clouds and had no views, and it rained hard before we got back to the cars. Will have to go back for the views and a more challenging route. Trip Report
