**Edit** This was kind of a “spur of the moment” tourwhere we chose our line from a digi photo take the week before from an adjacent ridgeline, given that fact, we were mistaken in thinking that we were climbing U.S.G. I am still trying to put the real name to this peak. Sorry for the confusion.
2/21/09 Adimmen (TGR) and I got together to hit up a big line. We’d been talking about a S. Lookout trip but opted for the U.S. Grant line first due to it’s remoteness and the absolutely steller weather that was upon us. The original plan was to hit U.S.G. on Sat. and then hit S. Lookout on Sun. Unfortunatly, due to the cruddy snow conditions we decided to put S. Lookout on hold until things shape up a bit and rode some sweet N facing trees on sunday.
Here’s the photos. Enjoy
We climbed and rode the obvious middle line.
The most difficult bootpack I’ve ever been a party too. Luckily Adimmen comes equiped with crazy mutant powers that allow him to set a bootpack in the crappiest of conditions.
The scenics, it’s too bad CO is so flat 😉 .
The action shots. I will post a few more when Adimmen sends them to me.
Hope you enjoyed the TR. I’ll post some more shots when I get ’em.
Nice line, gotta love the San Juans. I will look into which peak this is. Not Grant though uh. From where did you access this route. Alot better then the goods I got around Silveton this weekend.. Kendal looked nice. C
If you are ever headed to Twilight or Kendal please let me know. Live in your neighborhood and rarely have the chance to ride with other splitters. Always good to ride new lines with new folks. Looking to hit up Gun Barrel off of Molas later this week since conditions have finally stablized. Just damn beautiful out lately. Oh yeah, looking to go up Chicago Basin the first of May if you have any interest. Train starts running that weekend I believe. Thanks C
