Climbing at 90ft Cliff, Eagle creek.
Two back-to-back trips to the Eagle creek basin near Emerald bay.
Middle Palisade - October 22-23, 2011.
Attempted with Nick via the main class 3 chute, but mixed snow and ice turned us around. This was our 2nd attempt. We will be back.
Close but no cigar. We topped out at about 13,200 feet, but had to turn back due to loose rock and sketchy scrambling conditions.
Great 3 day trip climbing the west face of Shasta, and tackling the west chutes! 7000ft of perfect corn - in July!!
Climbed with Nick via the east couloir, and then skied 'ski dreams' on the descent. Sloppy snow, but lots of fun.
4500 feet of up, 5200 feet of down, and a lot of corn snow...
A big day of deep, deep pow at Squaw Valley, and a couple pics of Jay slashing it up!
