Nomad-yeh...spring is the best time to do the route, but some have done it as a winter trip. It can be done in the right conditions. I am all healed up from my bruise. It did hurt for a long time though.
Ecobrad-thanks for the advice...relaxing is going to be essential! I just hope it can be SAFELY pulled off.
Ecobrad-Yup...if it is sketchy it is a no go...there are so many other lines just down the range that are equally beautiful and long vert (Buck Mountain, Teewinot, Static, Middle Teton Glacier, and on and on). Time is on my side too. No more work until August! Gotta love teaching. Crazy you have already seen the board. I am sure they are sweet!
I know that I am stoked that all these manufactures are producing splits...it is SO good for our sport, along with this great website...add the fuel to the fire and let her burn!
