I had been dreaming of climbing this spectacular line in Rocky Mountain National Park for over a year. After reading trip reports of sucessful ascents and ski descents of Dragon's Tail Couloir this season I was raring to go. Things seemed to fall in place for my own ascent on the first weekend in May - conditions looked good and I lined up a bunch of my favorite partners. Dragon's Tail Couloir did not dissappoint - it was a spectacular climb in a spectacular setting!

Voted 10/10

Than a 5 minute video is worth 9,000,000 words. We almost climbed and filmed this route the day before(May 5) but it did not appear to have been below freezing. If you get a chance, we shot some skiing video off the north side the day before, check it out. It is one of the 4 trip reports under this mountain.

Nice work, embedded video is the way to tell a story! I would like to collaborate with you sometime. Let me know what your plans are.
