Pretty happy with the day , except for almost falling into a giant 15 ft. crevace, that was crowning that hill.3/3/07. Good stuff!
Just another example that focus is the most important aspect of survivial in the backcountry. Don't get caught sleepin. It might be permanent.
Good ride plus exceptional turns. A yearly must do on my list. Or usually thrice. If big momma is willing to cooperate.
Prey for MORE SNOW!!

Thanks for report. The snow was pretty fun that day. Unfortunately it all has turned to crap. And I heard that it is suppose to get up to 62 degrees today. BULLSHIT!
We need more SNOW. NOW!

Intro: I've been staring at two lines in my local haunts for quite some time that I've just never made time to tick off my list. The stars aligned with the work, family, conditions, and partners and I was finally able to grab them both, in the same day. :)
******************************************************************************

The Steeleman…stoked to be out in the bc for the first time this season!
Image

The first ascent is up a south facing slope which made for firm and grippy snow. We were able take a really direct (steep) route and make great time.

At the mid mountain the snow softened a little.
Image

But the winds started picking up the higher we climbed.
Image

And near the top we were skinning like drunk sailors and getting sandblasted by snow.
Image

Looking over to Baldy and the fracture line we spied from our tour on 3-1-07.
Image

The angle from 3-1-07.
Image

Steeleman loving the view.

Desolation Wilderness
Image

With the high winds on the summit and the clock ticking we didn't waste too much before dropping. We also met some other folks up there too that started at a different spot and where topping out just as we were. Everyone was stoked on the climb, weather, and upcoming descent.

Steeleman enjoys some of the chalky goodness off the top.
Image

And then shakes some of the cobwebs out.
Image

diswasher-dave is next.
Image

Steeleman gets his feet under him again and goes next.
Image

Image

Image

bcr has seen enough and takes a sample as well.
Image

Image

Image

dishwasher-dave cant resist a juicy toeside carve on the rollover too.
Image

Image

Next up is another mini pitch and jib, steeleman does the honors.
Image

Image

dave goes next.
Image

Image

Image

bcr hits the next pitch.
