Mount Evans 14,265′ Summit Bowl – Steep Chute Ascent – Corn Descent – 5/29/2014

With the end of the clear weather approaching, me and Gary headed up the Mt Evans Road to squeeze in another line or two. Driving up the road at sunrise was sweet and we geared up for the climb up Evans at the Summit Lake lot. We skinned up to the basin below the North Face and choose to ascend the steep couloir that leads almost directly to the summit. We were thinking about skiing this but the conditions just didn’t merit it. 2″ ice crust on about 8″ of grauple. Very minimal transition on this aspect kept us away. So we opted for the corn run down the bowl proper. The snow was great and I think we made the right decision.

Afterward we started to head over towards Spalding to go for Windy City but with the temps rising fast we decided not to go for it. It was a good few days. The body is tired and I’m looking forward to getting in some time with my kids. Thanks for a sweet tour Gary. Enjoy the pics.
