Love the sense of adventure and good ole mini-expeditionary style to approaching these peaks. Spending 7 days in there is awesome. Congrats dude.

Skiing off of Wham Ridge looks like a blast

Unbelievable!     04/20/2011 16:25
Amazing trip and photos guys. When we did Wham Ridge this past summer, I remember thinking that it would be insanely fun to ski that face (if I had the gumption to do that long of an approach, hehe). Congratulations on so many cool lines. All the work you guys put into the approach certainly paid off.

Links are broken     04/23/2011 14:56
But you can still copy and paste them into your browser. Wow Jordan, this is nuts! Some of these photos are great!!! I love Vestal (if anyone knows me they know it is somewhat of an obsession) so this report is great. Loved some of the photos from below Vestal. So neat to see this valley all covered in snow. I bet that you guys were tired eh!? Congrats again on a wonderful trip and thanks for sharing it with us here. I for one don't mind one bit clicking on an external link! BRAVO!
