May 22, 2014, Mt. Stuart, Sherpa Glacier / Couloir
« on: 05/23/14, 10:40 AM »

Skied from top of the couloir in mid afternoon. Schrund still passable on climbers' left. Utilized bootpack from the group of 8 Californians camped out on the north side, attempting various routes this week.

Hoped to make the summit but ran out of time. The Mountaineers Creek approach is longer than I remember!

Top of the couloir skied well but soft with some sluff / slush management. Turns down low on the shaded side were great - steep and edgeable. Glacier was a bit sticky due to the late hour of the day.

Awesome Awesome Awesome!  Beautiful pics.  Makes me wish I was there right now (of course right now I think it is raining up there).  Awesome.

Great pics.  Just looking at that bootpack makes my toes sore.

Booyah Pete!
Hopefully there's still time for us to get out for a slide this year.
