Crestone Peak's NW couloir looks in! Great photos, Kevin!


Great timing     2012-04-04 08:27:52
Looks like a great time to get that couloir. Surprising how little snow is in the area.


Nice TR Kevin!     2012-04-04 08:54:42
Crazy how we could have a conversation up there! Cole's looks awesome and may have to be the way I ski it. Glad y'all didn't have the post holing awesomeness Bill and I did; you missed out!

Usakeller, I think you would enjoy the ski on Coles. I'm sure I would have cruised right over a lot of your post holes with snowshoes! It would have been a similar story with skis in the Spanish creek side

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Very nice quote, Wascly! I prefer the road less traveled any day and Spanish Creek indeed was!

is the man when it comes to poetry. But when it comes to climbing the rocky mountains, you Kevin are right up there with the best of them. A beautiful report that does justice for the mountain, one I haven't yet visited, but it's nearing the time that I stop putting it off and just go see for myself. Thanks for telling the story.
