Mt Lincoln 14,286′ Russian Couloir 5/14/2013 – Finally

So with all the snow that we’ve been getting, this spring has posed some problems with getting up high. It’s all about the weather windows in my opinion, and the weather windows have been a little hard to come by. I have an aversion to getting up high and then being caught in clouds, I […]
