Route Climbed: From Monte Cristo TH, east slope Date Climbed: 06-17-90
This was my first 14er. Jay & I climbed up the east slope and glissaded down the south couloir to the dam. It was also was my ice ax experience after Wilderness Trekking class, and the snow in the couloir had melted considerably. Needless to say, this glissade turned out to be quite exciting (even bordering on terrifying)!!
