On the Crux

Taken on Sourdough Mountain, North Cascades, WA of December 30, 2010. The slopes to the side had a bit of slide action as well as minor cornices. I managed to slip in a quick shot.

Re: Now that's work,

Thanks, my friend Joanna was not so found of this spot. There was a bit of slippery spots involved, ice axe would sometimes not go in well, and when I bumped the side it set off a snow slide which meant don't fall.

Re: Great!!

Thanks Mountainfriend! I've gotten out a lot more since I was on this site last. In 2010 I've gotten out pretty much every weekend and am once again going to get in the best shape of my life. I've had a lot of amazing experiences and life lessons, I am going to be honest I feel older than 18 because of that.

Re: Great!!

Sounds very good Josh!!
Experience ever be something important in our lives. I ever talk to my girlfriend to hear older people and get more lessons from these moments.
When I was 18, I thought I was indestructible... and the life taught us that's not true!
A great hug for you!!

Re: Sweet . . .

I was on Winter Break which most of the time the weather was lousy, but then came a opportunity of clearing. The previous day the clouds were coming off the mountains, then after this trip more clouds came in. But for the time being on the mountain it was clear for the most part.
