SEFGreat Romp  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 3, 2013
My furry, 4 legged partner and I did it earlier today. What a blast! Dog is very sure footed in the couloir, we spent at most 30 minutes in it. Dog would lumber up ahead of me a ways then come bounding back, like, "what's taking you so long?"

Class 3 scramble to tag the summit.

Beautiful weather.

Did both left and right variations. Pretty comparable, both fun.

Solo. Followed the right hand fork. Pretty firm ice with a light cover of fluff from the storm that passed through a few days earlier. High winds on the summit and frigid temps meant I only spent a few minutes on the summit. Returned via west ridge.

Left and right variations, respectively. Fun, short and steep.

The right variation can sometimes be melted out .. had to traverse a bit right and finish on some mixed rock/snow. A little sketchy :)

Nice early winter conditions... solid steps in new snow with frequent stretches of exposed AI. Thin snow-cover and 10 feet of exposed, hold-less slab blocked the exit near top of RH chute; reversed steps and climbed LH chute with just a little mixed choss near the top. Spectacular climb.

Perfect snow conditions in the right fork of the CMC. The final step to the east summit was harder icy rock.

A short approach, consistently steep climb, a thrilling topout, and some fun scrambling to boot - and back to the car early enough for an early dinner and drive home :-)

Waist deep blower in the couloir, perfect windblown on the hanging face above. First day out on the snowboard, this line did not disappoint!

This was my third (or 4th?) climb of the CMC. As usual, another beautiful day and great unconsolidated, powdery snow in the belly of the couloir! Love this place!

Perfect conditions (except being too warm in the sun) and great snow. Glad I started at 0645 (even though I was lost for an hour in the woods!) and topped-out just as the sun was hitting the exit point of the right fork. Not sure what "spicy" and "dicey" exit was supposed to mean, I found this couloir to be excellently within my abilities, exciting but too damn short.
Scrambled to summit then tagged The Sisters, boot glissaded down to the lake then proceeded to get lost on the way out. Think I got heat stroke!

Climbed Crescent Moon with lefty. Started from Carson Pass trailhead ~ 8:30am and summited by 11:45am. Took a lunch break up the top and then headed down to tag Elephants Back.
