Torreys Peak 14,267′ – Emperor Couloir – 6/13/2013 – Oh My God We’re SOOO Late :)

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 […]

Well I over slept my alarm the day before and woke up when my truck got really warm. I was on La Sal Pass trying to get Tuk done but when I was driving out I noticed it didn’t have enough snow for a ski. So I guess it all worked out OK in the […]
