Howdy gang! Finally getting out and about now that work obligations are not so crazy. Headed out Friday night to camp and it was -19 when we left the cars. Woke up in the morning and it was equally cold, but killer bluebird day.

Finally snagged a line that I have been dreaming of all season. We call this Buffalo Fork Peak Couloir. The snow was quite variable, but bomber as far as stability...something that is nice when climbing bigger exposed lines.

Morning wake up photo...nope...not frozen at all.

Tim with the obligatory point..."Damn...look at those lines"

Our route of Buffalo Fork Peak Couloir.

My cuz Tim from Santa Fe skinning up to our objective.

Great views on the approach.
Image

Perspective view of steepness (Tim above boards) and truly and endless winter. Gotta smile for snow!
Image

Playing it safe and digging a pit...BOMBER...it's a go!
Image

Climbing higher.
Image

By the time we neared the top, clouds, cold, and snow started moving in. These cornices are a big concern on this climb...very thankful it is not heating up.

It was a sick day for sure on Togwotee Pass. It wasn't blower pow, but the snow was good for gettin' after it. Should be a great weekend coming up!
