No Kings yet. I lost one on a day I was out by myself, but it should continue to pick up the next couple weeks.
A morning climb of the Mt. Jumbo Couloir out the backyard:
|From the top of the couloir climb looking down. 1600 ft crampon climb in 35 minutes after an hour approach.|
|A beautiful day last weekend out the road|
|Sam fades on the beach|
|Stout played continuously with Barley|
|Chilkats in background|
|Lots of frisbee until our arms were tired|
Sheep Mountain heli drop:
We got a group of 5 together for a heli drop up on Sheep Mtn (4200 ft) last weekend. We skied and skinned to get a total of 4 runs in. Perfect spring corn snow! We hiked out Perseverance trail.
|Prepared for take-off|
|Ready to rip from the summit after the drop|
|Me on the 3rd run|
|Ski lines from Sam and myself|
|Hillary on the first run of the morning|
|Skinning back up|
|First day of ice break-up was this week, so we were able to get the skiff out to sample the water coming off the glacier|
|Not a bad morning to be on the lake|
|Glacier outflow that we sampled at the terminus|
|Working my way up to get water|
This time of the year is just exhausting ...
