Steep Snow

The last chute is the steepest on the route and has a few spots ranging from 55 to 60 degrees. It's only about 50 degrees here. Notice the glissade path. Photographed at 6000 feet, May 31, 2009.

Going down

It must have been fun to jump into that luge chute at the end.

Re: Going down

Yes, like a water-slide without water.

Re: you have the best pictures!

Wow, that's really nice of you to say! But it makes it pretty easy living in the Seattle area. I see you're coming out here for Rainier in August. That's great! If you've got extra time and want to hike, let me know.

Wow.

This photo makes me want to jump in the car and head over there! I love climbing gullies! At least when the snow conditions are good. Lol!

Re: Wow.

You're sight, spring snow climbing is a blast, especially in gullies.
