Apache Mtn, Queen's Way Couloir Conditions

Postby rickinco123 » Mon Jul 23, 2012 12:36 pm

Queen's Way is very doable but the conditions are very uneven making it difficult to establish a rhythm with any consistent cramponing technique. Slush one minute, soft ice the next. Quite a work out!

It is also impossible to exit this couloir without knocking large rocks down the couloir. Try to wait for any climbers below you to come in sight before you exit.

I tried to post this under the conditions section but it would not work for me.
