 The Grizzly Coulier   

View of Torrey's Peak from Rt. 70

My first good look at Grizzly Peak & it's infamous coulier.

I met Ryan from Full Room Production ski films & his buddy Brendon at the bottom of the coulier. We chatted, discovered we all had the same goal so we started our assent up the coulier while evaluating the 30' cornius hanging over our heads.

About 1/2 way up I took a glance down.

Brendon headed up the last 50' to the launch pad just below the cornice.

Ryan & I dig out a safe shelf to catch Brendon on film. Little did we know we were also going to catch a small slab slide kicked off by Brendon's first ski cut. Can't wait to see that in Full Room's film this fall!

Shot of the avi debris path along w/ our ski tacks.

Our 3 ski tracks up close.

My signature victory photo.

Lunch while we enjoy the view.

Ryan's face says it all.

A last look back at Grizzly's coulier.

You posted this under the wrong Grizzly. You did Grizzly Peak D here:

The Grizzly you posted it under is west of Antero in the Sawatch.
