Route Climbed: Juliet Couloir traverse to Jasper Peak Date Climbed: June 1979
My CMC Basic Mountaineering School graduation climb. The leader threw in a twist at the meeting place by announcing we would do a planned "forced bivy". After the climb we would spend the night out with only the stuff in our daypacks. Putting your feet into your pack is a good thing.
Route Climbed: Northwest Ridge Date Climbed: 7-3-2003
I hiked Mount Neva on 7-3-2003 from the west side of the IPW. I was having a family reunion in Winter Park at the time and couldn't talk one person to go with me on this easy hike. Look what they missed out on!
