After a season of talking and looking, and buddy and i decided to get the rope out and make things happen. The area had been plagued by a semi supportive MF crust. But we where able to find a couple of turns of soft stuff before the crust, in a nice protected N face.
Here is a short video of our line. I am waiting on the other footage. For the time being, here is what i was able to get, and put together. I am still trying to figue out the best way to compress video files, so the image quality is not the best.

PS. Since my prior split had blow apart on me(for no apparent reason) i had to snowshoe. Please let me reassure you - SNOWSHOES FUCKING SUCK

Nice line! Any Couloir that you have to rap into is a good couloir!

yeah there are some issuse around. Facets in some places, and preseved surface hoar in others(BTL), and a shitload of new snow. It really variable right now. Was on White Queen two weeks the snow was fantastic, but i did notice some whumpfing in the trees. Rode backsides last week - should have been in Rossland, but nobody to ride with. SE aspects of Tent Ridge got some action last week(SA i think).
