RomaKFun couloir climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 16, 2015


Went up with a big group. Very low snow year. Parts of the upper couloir were melted out already. We had 2nd ice tools along just in case, but we kept them in our packs. It was about 45 degrees and mostly snow (with a short 10-15 foot section of ice). Very straightforward cramponing up. Fun day in the mountains!

Right after the road opened. Nice sunny day. Moderate route when it's full of snow, gets more difficult when the chockstone melts out.

Great outing in ideal conditions. Firm snow on the way up from the hairpin, icy snow in the couloir, and soft snow for the descent. With such firm snow in the couloir, we didn't rope up, but a second tool was nice.

was a lot of fun. The upper couloir was really iced out and delaminated, got a little spicy.

What a fun day! Great moderate route, had a couple of newbies with me. Used a couple pickets and some small rock gear.
