Lars has been talking for some time about getting out to ski this line. I hadn't skied it either. After serious bush-whacking, we found the lower section avalanched with two week-old debris that had come off the north face. Above the wreckage we found consolidated powder mixed with ice, a 1" slab and untouched conditions. As the sun bathed the valley floor the cold north-side skied wonderfully.
On our exit through the brush, we found a mountain lion had travelled right over our skin track we had left less than an hour or so previously.
