 Clinton Peak East Chute The Last Line - OH YEAH!!!!   

Back in '93 this was the 1st line I skied in the range. I only have one surviving shot left. So the first becomes the last. Dobish and Jesse joined me for this one. Old friend and new friend. NICE.

Me and Dobish headed up the night before. The plan was to get as far up Wheeler Road as we could. By the time we got up there it was dark. The 1st obstacle by the mine was difficult. The second obstacle was just too difficult in the dark so we made camp. Jesse hiked up to the camp site in the morning and I decided to give driving another shot. I don't have lockers on my 4runner but I thought with proper tire placement I could get it done. I got it on the 1st try. The next obstacles went down pretty easily and we stopped at the snow at about 11500. That's one bumpy road.

I love hiking for skiing in the summer... For more word and pics click

Congrats on finishing the Tenmile lines. Strong work for sure. Can't wait to see the book. Have a good summer -- winter should return soon enough.
