Palomino Pt - "Gatsby" Couloir


Gore Range - CO

Palomino Pt. - 13,045' 

"Gatsby" Couloir 


The week prior when we ski'd "orphan boy" Col, i couldn't stop looking at Palomino Pt to the south across the drainage.  I took way to many photos of it:)  With several north facing chutes marking the north face of the pk it just was begging to be ski'd.  The prominent snowfield to couloir lookers right of the summit spire became  our goal the following week.....And It was Money!  an absolute awesome climb, summit and ski!  Unforgettable day for sure!

"Gatsby" Col - Palomino Pt

By no means is "Gatsby" a recognized name...when we ski'd Keller Mtn the week prior the line caught my attention, so we made plans to ski it the following week.  I kept seeing an image of a face when i glanced at the peak.  Then i put my finger on it... the great gatsby eyes/face...  go google it and see if you can see it:)
