Definitely some fun lines on that face. Might even be doable in this "dud" of a winter. Hmmn.

The next time I go up Guyot I'm going to send a scout camera down that chute since the intersection of the main couloir isn't obvious (to me) when looking down.
Only SNOW will end the madness

Sun is working fast. Here's the line as seen today, 3/25. We planned to climb it but opted for a different line as we didn't have rope and pro. Red circle is a wall of ice, yellow arrows are the chutes, both iced over/melted out. :x

Anyone knows the recent conditions of Guyot? Especially the snow coverage on its NW slope?
Is it possible to ski continuously from near summit to bellow tree line in the next few weeks?

Thanks for the update.
Looks like this route will be skiable for the next weekend.

I agree, it looked very skiable.
