climbed the beautiful cross couloir w/mike. approach hike was much gentler than the boulder hopping nightmare to the bowl of tears which i was dreading! cloudy day, so the couloir remained pretty hard the entire way up. fantastic setting inside the walls of holy cross!

Ascent of Cross with Halo Descent. Patchy snow to East Cross Creek, more substantial as you start to climb towards Bowl of Tears, then patchy to entrance. Couloir is good for crampon ascent, but runnels and sun cups not so good for a ski descent, recommend leaving skis at home until next season on this one.

Climbed the North Ridge and skied the Cross from the summit in late-winter powder. This is a spectacular couloir, it lived up to its reputation.

Up the cross couloir, down the North ridge. Watch for rockfall as the snow softens up.

Even though the hardest part was probably boot banging down the standard route and full packing it out of half moon pass on the descent

Early start to get the good snow, and topped out at 8:30am or so. Long way out due to the 1000 feet elevation gain to Halfmoon Pass.

Perfect day, long one-day ascent (13.5 hrs with plenty of breaks on the way out).
