chicagotransplantX-Rated Couloir  Sucess!

We went up the X-Rated couloir, basically "straight up the gut". At the top we veered left for the finish to avoid cornices near the summit. Continuous snow basically from the trailhead, was a little soupy in the trees in the afternoon but was nice up high where it buried the willows!

I had no idea how great of a snow climb this was going to be. We didn't take either line shown on the route photo, just went for the line that looked most inviting. We started directly below the summit and climbed straight up, passing through two surfacing but not quite exposed, icy rock bands. New snow in the upper portion was stable but made for a ton of work. All of us were very surprised what a great line it ended up being! I did some research and found that this line has been coined X Rated for an X on the upper part. With a trailess, willow bashing approach, this beauty comes with a price. We're fairly certain the guy we met on the summit thought he was on La Plata :)
