What an excellent day to be out in the mountains! Blue skies, no wind, and mid 60's in March! Climbed with MtnEar up the north couloir and it was absolutely awesome! Pretty steep and narrow it was, and the snow conditions were perfect! It was pretty hot and stuffy up on the summit slopes and I got me some sunburn, but was fairly overcome with joy to be sitting on the lofty summit perch! This is a pretty steep mountain overall, in my opinion, and one of the better winter/spring climbs that I have done. I like to take it easy plunge stepping on the way down and enjoying the views. Some would like to ski or glissade, but that just gets me off the mountain quicker and away from where I want to be! Really an excellent snow climb and summit!!

A week of storms brought some nice snow deposits. Skied the north face under a crystal clear sky. Avalanches on south slopes, north slopes stable.

Beautiful half-day out provided an almost completely clear sky on top. Summited via the North couloir...wait for the sun to hit the snow if you don't have crampons. Shorter climb than expected (seven hours), but still well worth the effort.

Slogged this one in May a couple of years ago via the North couloir. Couldn't find any partners, so did it alone. Fun (snow) ascent, fun (and fast)descent.(The approach is tick city in the spring, though). I encountered some scary exposed thin snow on loose rocks near the summit. Watch out.

Long, tricky, confusing approach. No beta! True route finding and I LOVE it! No cheating! The upper slopes are SERIOUSLY loose, take caution! Solo with Teewinot, my trust mountain mutt. Better with snow I bet!
