Dang if we didn't ski SoCal in June! B-Nic and I climbed and skied this baby from the top on 3 June. Found "nice" suncups, so on the 4th we ascended a little more than halfway up the couloir and skied down, missing the steepest section and ugliest suncups. Fantastic descent all the way to Dollar Lake!
Finally! Been wanting to climb this one for 2 years. We had an unforecasted graupel pelting and high winds for the day but this was not a deterrent. Loved the couloir although I must say there is nothing over 35 degrees in it. :/ We tagged Charlton, Lil Charlton, climbed a couloir on Jepson's north face, then tagged San G. CTC in just under 12 hours; we were pretty happy about that.
