Good God....     11/30/2010 17:28
man!! That was one super-tight couloir you skiied down! I seriously didn't know how good you were. You, Chicago Transplant and Bill should all hook up for some b/c. You had one sick run there, Jordan. A HUGE Congratulations on skiing this from the top, espacially under skimpy conditions.
Most of those pictures, especially the profile shot of you on the summit and the down-looking shot of you on that thong of snow are awesome. Sweet job with the camera, Brian!
Better be careful, Jordan, this mountaineering stuff might usurp you away from school!

I'm REALLY looking forward to your El Diente TR.

Jordan, looking back on it, too bad I didn't get you midair on that jump turn just below the summit, that would've looked pretty cool, but I didn't realize you had taken so many good pics otherwise, nice job with the report and the descent man, it was a good day.

Thanks all     11/30/2010 17:28
It was pretty fun making it work to go from the summit, and Kiefer, I don't know if you realized this, but it's kinda already usurped me!

It was a great day out there on one of my favorite peaks, someone just decided to sprinkle snow in the right spot.
