Abiathar Peak , Yellowstone April 22
« on: 04/22/18, 04:31 PM »

Sunny and warm so an early start with Beau.
We headed a short distance into the park with the central couloir on Abiathar Peak as our destination.
Touring through the woods to the upper cirque was very similar to the approach to Blue Lake col on the birthday tour on highway 20.
Once we got to the alpine the mountain dominates the cirque with the central couloir splitting it nearly to the top.
We skinned up the steepening apron to the start of the couloir proper where Beau found a nice protected place beneath some rock to prepare for the boot pack .
Unfortunately it was just too warm and the rocks were heating up and small stuffs starting so he called it.
We skied down the apron on grabby proto corn and then down through the trees on mashed potatoes, breakable crust and some decent corn near the bottom.
The skiing was difficult but the ambiance magnificent.
Mrs Scotsman drove into the park while we were out and saw wolves in the Lamar valley so we all had a good day.
Cooke City is a special place.
