  • Summer wanderings

    A little beauty spot at yesterday's high point.


    Folks skied this in the 1928 to mid-thirties timeframe. It shows on old maps. Pretty big drop at the stream's horizon. Stream is choked with cross-fallen trees all the way down to the --------- Brook, about 850' vertical drop from here.

          Indeed. Things are looking nice, nearly buffed. New access to a stout nearby attraction progressing.

              We 'shwacked alongside it for slightly less than 500 vertical feet. there is so much sluff and slide that there is usually about 35-40 feet of snow collected in the flat. Definitely have to employ Avy Protocols, the average grade is 54%.

              Note, this is not the same drain as the OP

                The sick slick rock pitch is one drainage to the left I believe. That would mean it is the more sinister line.

                  Third drain to the left....making it very, very sinister.
