McNamee Peak 13,780′ Barely Legal Gully 6/8/2011

With my little one scheduled for a day care day and my older one out of town at Grandmas it seemed like an opportune time to get another route in. After looking at Stan’s trip report from a few weeks ago this seemed like a great line to do solo. The very top being the only issue but after seeing it I wasn’t worried. I measured it at 40 degrees and though a bit icy it was still fun skiing. Lower down the line the snow was perfect corn. I stopped at the dogleg of the gully and took pictures but wish I hadn’t. It was don’t wanna stop snow.

Enjoy the pics.
