Route Climbed: SW couloir Date Climbed: April 26, 2003
An awesome sun drenched day. Climbing with Tom breit we got an early start and on the summit by around noon. Saw only one other party of 2 ahead of us. Conditions lower down were just steep, crusty, avalanche consolidation. Higher up in the crux slot there was more of a melt-freeze cycle going on and a bit harder ice. Views on top were hard to beat.

A short 3 hour approach followed by an incredible 700 ft of solid 40-50 degree snow with crampons and ice axe. Best climb of year by far. The final 20 feet was a 4th class boulder hop at the edge of a 20ft thick cornice. Views?! Wow. What a day. With Matt Wacker.
