Couloir crossover point on Crestone Needle
Setting up an anchor at the famous crossover point between the eastern and western couloirs on Crestone Needle's south face during a winter ascent. The climbing out of the eastern couloir to this point was the crux of the climb. Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Colorado. February 2009.

That's the north side of UN 13,270 aka "Crestolita".

Yep, looking south. You can see the Blanca group in the distance. There is a couloir going up the middle of Crestolita that I've had on my to-do list for a while now. You can see it well in my picture titled "Crestolita". Its north facing and somewhat inset so it'll probably have snow in June.
