(Taken from Mt Huntington): Joe was already out there, a day ahead of me. So on Friday night I hiked in after work, and set up camp below Bear Creek Spire. Sunrise: Moonset: I packed up camp and headed over Cox Col, where I found Joe on the West side above Lake Italy. After dropping off some gear, we set off for the East Face of Gabb. Climbing: Views: On the summit, looking down into the North Couloir: On the ridge: Looking North: Skiing down into the couloir: The top had been stripped by the wind, and involved some navigating through the rocks. Joe opted to do this a little more gracefully than I did: Back to the snow: Now it’s time for some skiing: Out on the apron: Looking back: From the bottom of the Couloir we had a short climb over Gabbott Pass to get back to camp: It’s over there somewhere: Matching tents: Mt Julius Caesar: Nightfall: Climbing back over Cox Col in the morning: Below Bear Creek Spire: Heading down into Rock Creek Canyon: April 29, 2008 at 6:32 pm #605816 bcrider 4149 Posts Fabulous pics BCD! 8) April 29, 2008 at 10:48 pm #605817 jcocci 699 Posts @bcrider wrote: Fabulous pics BCD! 8) My thoughts exactly.

If by some miracle we get 6 inches or more of snow I know where I’m going. I never knew that line existed.
