slept at the couloir base - started climbing at 5 am - had the whole couloir for myself
It's a great climb, couldn't have asked for better conditions. I'm going to echo Skasgaard & Gareth, I was expecting it to be a little steeper also.
I had so much fun I may have to go back before it is out.
Nice climb, lots of people on the mountain. Still a great training ascent. Climbed with Tim and Mike.
I'd have to agree with Gareth. It was a cool asthetic line but I expected steeper.
Nice climb...I kinda expected it to be steeper, though.
Climbed with rkymtn. We left the truck before 5 am (from 15 minutes below the TH) and were at the couloir base by 7. We topped out two hours later. Conditions were soft snow with rock fall, some of it too close. We headed to Grays before heading down before any afternoon storms.
Solo ... training for the West Rib Route on Denali.
Great Conditions!! Cold morning made the snow firm and easy for climbing. I was prepared for a hard climb, but was actually quite easy. Had fun, and the slide down is always a blast. Happy Climbing
