shanahan96north couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 31, 2010


climbed the north couloir via yankee boy with mike. the ascent was lovely as the snow hid potosi's infamous nightmare scree. the couloir was bulletproof in the morning shade, but we felt comfortable on the 40-45 degree slopes. pulling onto the summit was INCREDIBLE with the snow-covered wilsons in our face and white san juans everywhere!

best summit view in colorado?

chicagotransplantNorth Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 31, 2010


Climbed with Jamie via Yankee Boy Basin. We went up the face of Coffeepot to a point where we could traverse high (about 13k?) then drop to 12,600 on the Weehawken Basin side of Potosi. From there we ascended the North Couloir (40-45 degrees, steepest near the top) then up the final gentle slopes to the large summit. Descended the "standard route".

This was a great way to experience this mountain, the snow hid most of the loose stuff, and the north couloir was a really fun climb!
