June 28, 2006, Boulder-Park Cleaver, Mt Baker
« on: 06/29/06, 09:35 AM »

The Boulder-Park Cleaver still has continuous snow to the spot where the trail exits the trees into the open drainage, allowing a continous 7k descent.  I stepped on rocks and made a little gelande jump onto the snow below the one spot where the cleaver's snow was discontinous, circa 8,500.  Both the Boulder Glacier and the Park Headwall are in good condition.

The road is in way better condition than it was a couple years ago!  Gone are both the potholes and washouts.

The headwall is in absolutely ripper condition, just not at 4:30 in the afternoon when the sun has set on it and the surface of the snow has already refrozen.  I skied about a dozen turns of it, decided it wasn't that enjoyable, then returned to the summit and skied the Boulder.

Something about not starting from the 2,700' trailhead until 7am... but that's a different can of worms!

THANKS for playing stupid just to get me all excited.  Your ploy is obvious and you are incorrigible.  Lucky for you I'm so irascible.
