Nice fin of snow!

Great series of photos. I hope another window opens up for Leuthold this year. Your photos are crushing me as I REALLY wanted to do that route. Next time, I might have to brave the icefall.

Re: Nice fin of snow!

Thanks. That's the Upper Buttress of Yocum Ridge in the background. It was kind of sinister because that's where a lot of the ice fall was coming from.



I'm sure you'll get another chance at the route since it usually stays in through May. It's actually sort of a slog without the objective hazards. I've heard Reid Headwall is more interesting.

Same here but I figured I'd work up to that one with Leuthold as the intermediate step.
