Deaf Smith

it is not common to see tracks this low in Deaf Smith N Fk, did you guys descend all the way down this drainage, or backtrack up again?

Generally it would be awfully nice to see some route descriptions and dates ;)

This was April 12th, 2005. After a huge snow year. We skied out Deaf Smith.

I was too lazy to bring skis here on June 11th :)

and just glissaded down this gorgeous gully, and then butt-slided as it widened into the apron (my shot is posted here).

The coloir doesn't look as spooky as on your fantastic picture when you are in it. Anyway when avy danger is unacceptable or when the cliff bands melt out of the snow, one can bypass either the upper reaches of the coloir, or the whole of it, by a descending traverse of the wide benches to the North of it, above the trees visible in this photo.

I love your photos!

The Wasatch defintely doesn't have enough good winter photos - keep em comin'!



P.S. That narrow couloir in the upper right looks like something fun to climb - I wonder how long it holds snow?
