June 23 2008 - Wedge Couloir aka NW couloir
« on: 06/24/08, 11:44 AM »

Trevor, Chris and I went to Wedge.   First we hiked up 1200m to Wedgemount Lake



The views were OK I suppose



and optimism was high for next day's project



Conditions looked good and weather promising the next day early in the morning



But as the highest peak in this general area, Wedge seems to attract its own weather



As we had no other pressing engagements we kept soldiering on



The weather window never came and we descended 50 degree icy slopes after waiting in whiteout



Of course the weather was good in valley bottom



It wasn't pretty but it's off the ticklist
