Dana and North Peak couloir conditions?

Postby Carbo » Fri Jun 29, 2012 10:27 pm

Hi
Anyone been up there recently and know the conditions of these couloirs?
I know it is usually later in summer these are in but we have had a low snow year

Ended up doing Dana two weeks ago. It was still mainly snow, but some icier patches were appearing. Can't speak of North peak couloirs.

I'm curious what conditions are like as well. I'm considering hiking Dana [first time :P ] this weekend.

Quite interested myself, V! I'll be up there in the next few weeks, by Sept. 15 at the latest- will post back if no one else has. How do you think the Mendell Couloirs would be in the next couple weeks- you were up there not long ago, no?

Mendel right would probably be 'in' a great shape right now. Pass the by now probably big shrund on the left side and traverse right. Couloir was in great shape when I was there, with some loose snow over ice in sections, which made things spicy. IMO will not be there now.
