had to jump onto the ridge halfway up. not recommended.
Had a great climb and ski down the north couloir. Missouri is holding snow better than any 14er I have seen this year.
Skied this face in June, 09'. One of the best 14er lines in the Sawatch.
Myself and a buddy from Vail climbed on early season snow (prolly not the best idea) and eventually, roughly 40 feet from the ridge, contoured over to some crumbly and rotten fins to finish the climb. These would be great on spring snow!
Climbed and then skied the main north couloir (the one that tops out just below the summit). Climbed with shanahan96.
climbed the north face with mike. our line topped us out just feet from the summit and i enjoyed looking down the couloir as it fell away while we climbed. ah, the return of couloir season!
