I have managed to find only a limited amount of information on the Clyde couloir that splits N. Palisade from Starlight. Porcella/Burns and Secor caution about ice and rockfall.
There are a couple of videos here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wc_7K3QlmGY
and some photos here: http://www.kurtwedbergphotography.com/S ... 4155_782xh
Physics and fbagni also have information on the SP page: http://www.summitpost.org/clyde-couloir/213924
But the question remains what exactly happened during those accidents in the couloir. Apparently two of them involved fatalities. Does anyone have more info on these? What time of year was it? What was the nature of the accidents? What happened? Has anyone else climbed the route and not reported back on their experience?
The route seems to have acquired a bad name for itself, but I want to get a better feeling whether it's because of bad luck, circumstances and the guidebook descriptions, or because the objective dangers of the route are indeed very high. I also wonder if people have climbed this over the years and not spread the word.
If you can shed some light on this, please speak up!
