Hope!  Sucess!

Skied this route from the summit in excellent condition. Would make for an awesome climb as well.

Soft Snow  Sucess!

Pretty cool couloir climb. Climbed with Britt Jones. Bit of a late start. Not sure what conditions would be like...soft snow. Very nice moderate snow climb.

Hopeful fun  Sucess!

Snow conditions were pretty amazing. The late spring snow we got really kept our couloirs in prime condition a lot later in the year than normal. We started climbing from about 12,600-12,700 range and were in solid snow pack up to the ridge at 13,800. I definitely recommend this route for those aspsiring snow climbers out there!

Had to go back for the Hopeful Couloir  Sucess!

Decent snow conditions, nice weather except the 40mph winds up high. Luckily the couloir itself was in a wind shadow. Cornice wasn't too threatening, direct finish. Scenic, mellow climb.

Fun Climb  Sucess!

Couldn't have asked for a better day....weather was perfect, conditions were good and we had the mountain to ourselves.

Felt like parts of the approach were steeper than the couloir!

Nice climb  Sucess!

Great couloir, have been eyeing this one from US24 for years and it was good to finally get it, and on a great day with continuous snow! Definitely took the proper exit on this one, no cornice, just a nice steep finish that topped out on the ridge.

hopeful couloir  Sucess!

couloir was sweet! around 1200-1300' vertical and started around 35-38 degrees while getting progressively steeper the entire way. the last 150' was 47-48 degrees and topped out just below the summit.

it would be a hidden gem, yet it seems like many people are learning about centennial thirteeners recently.
