Relatively easy skinning from Meadow Creek - although this peak is kind of a haul.

Equipment Needs

Axe and crampons may be needed if you decide to boot the couloir directly.  Other wise, no special equipment needs (other than your brain of course).


Consistent 40+ degree pitch of sheer bliss for 1200+ feet.  In low snow years, a narrow choke can develop about half way down, other wise the couloir is quite wide.
