Thanks to jtack for his TR last month

Lemah May 17-18

It gave me a compulsion that I could not control despite all attempts by wolfs to talk me back to sanity. The 7.6 miles of trail were mostly melted out as was the schwack. Started skinning from the end of the meadow. Large Avy debris filled most of the gully, but I was able to find good corn on the sides. The upper 800 feet still had some softness from new snow in the last few weeks but skied pretty good. I had dreamed of climbing lemah4, but time and the softer top layer up high that would occassionally give way when skinning prevented such shenanigans.

Oh uh...this isn't actually a trip report since I forgot my camera. And I wasn't able to do this in a day (or before breakfast), but my camp at lemah meadows with views of chimney rock was excellent. Also clouds lingered over the top of lemah and chimney most of the time.

I guess I'm not the only crazy one willing to endure a long approach and a nasty schwack. I saw someone else headed up on my way out. Hopefully he remembered his camera.
