A.nother D.amn A.lpine M.ountain S.ki - 160604-5
« on: 06/07/16, 02:17 PM »

while you were


sleeping



dreaming



four wheeling



naked



high



& watched over -



the booster club



shuffled



side hilled



clambered



and saw



glacial eruptions frozen



spinal cleavage



& a scratching of the monkeys head



leaving only traces to vanish in the snow

Too much loose snow to ski the North Face?

yeah, heavy fast moving sluffs on the steeps. Potentially manageable; Potentially dire consequences... so we backed off and skiied the ridge.
Earlier than usual may have given a window it being another record-breaking-temp day that it was.

Also-no bikes for us water.

Whoa, I don't remember there being a schrund across the ascent ridge of the Pinnacle last year.

... so we backed off and skiied the ridge.

Cool, thanks for your reply. In your "side hilled" pic I can see "raised beds" of what looks like thick loose snow on the main N face above and below the large cliff band/dogleg...That would have definitely steered me away!
Been 10 years since I have been there....10 years too many

eh, no guilt, good to see you all--I wanted to stick around and watch you ski it!  That's how it goes, experience builds, noon seemed like the perfect time given conditions as they were. And we all benefited from Cody's group road access beta--thanks Cody et al!
It was a fun ski/climb with some great people, good times!

I'll take half credit for the bike team... We rode up from my house in the Whitest Salmon.

Nice TR.
