shuksan headwall of hanging glacier and nwc
« on: 04/20/15, 05:21 PM »

On thursday got to pick off the headwall and the northwest coulior.  Spent two nights on the arm.  I figured it was easier then the long traverse there and back ive been doing.  Brought enough food for a small army, hoping we could stay longer and ski, but weather warmed up quicker then thought it would.  Over all a great trip and had some awasome skiing.

video is here for youre viewing pleasure.

Nice work and great video!  I've always wanted to do a line off of Shuksan.

What camera do you use for your videos?
