Ryan, this is a great photo of the entire south face route. You should do an route drawing and submit this photo again. Great shot!

Agreed. I can also see the West Couloir Route clearly in this picture!

Thanks for the kudos, guys! Aaron, what's the West Couloir route? Would that be the couloir on the Needle that leads to just under the Black Gendarme?

Hi Ryan-No. It's the short couloir to the LEFT of the standard route in this picture. A rock fin splits the two. This west couloir is mentioned in the Roach 14er guidebook. We took this route going down the mountain. It was fun and involved a 40 foot sheer downclimb when re-entering the standard couloir. I discuss it in more detail here.



If you want to send me a copy of the picture, I'll draw in the route for clarification and send it back to you to submit. It would be a nice info addition resulting from a collaborative effort for Allan's page.

This really does show how serious this peak could be. Great profile of the summit. Thanks!
