The experience was more than we would have asked for. Great guides, with exceptional service. We hope to use them again.
In most Sawtooth couloirs, the spice is usually found near the top and you never know what it’ll be like until you get there. Here we encountered a nasty section of rotten snow over 55 degree rock. Using a shovel, ice axe and whatever else we could think of, we scraped our way up out of the cold and into the sun. But now what?
