East Ridge to Southeast Face


With a perfectly timed weather window between a series of three storms Dave, Gary and I enjoyed a windless and mostly sunny jaunt up Peak 1… oh and the snow was untouched and perfect summit to car.

Southeast Couloir 


On friday the hoosier pass weather station (11400') reported 39 degrees max temp at 3:00pm.  Saturday forecast was calling for slightly lower temps with a bit of a breeze, thus we decided on a slightly more southern aspect in the alpine.  Again nailed it!
