Climbed with a team of four from Sierra Mountaineering Group. We approached from Convict canyon and base camped at Dorothy lake. The overall route was a fun mix of rock ice and snow and we were able to climb the entire length of the couloir to the summit.
Started from camp at Lake Wit-So-Nah-Pah. Lots of snow in the couloir from a dump about a week ago, but still some neve & ice exposed. Simul-soloed with a couple of climbers from socal (John and Sean) who happened to head up at the same time as me. This helped with trail breaking :)
The couloir jogs left about 3/4 of the way up. There were three sub chutes to the summit, which were probably partly melted out before last week's snow. These were entertaining ..
big snow year, 2006, allowed turns to be made nearly from the summit direct!
We were a group of 8 skiers, some of us climbed the couloir and skied it. Nice and windy day. Snow in good conditions to ski.
This is one long ass couloir. Climbed with Brad Mastros. Fine summit views, though.
