I thought it was pretty well observed that the Black Ice Couloir is defunct Jay?
No that I'd know.

Now there is a fun guy with whom I've had brief aquaintance.

Not so obvious to me your photo, because I'ver never been over to Spearhead.
Spearhead is it?

So it's true, then? That's what I'd heard, (re B.I.C) but seeing the north face photo made me think,"wonder if that thing really did melt?" If it wasn't for all the parties after me, I might have gotten the last ascent on that one.

That Swedlund quote is funny, in a sad sort of way. Ray Jacquot, R.I.P. (his partner on that one) was an engineering prof @UW when I was there. He gave us the beta for B.I. -"start at midnight."

BTW, Jacquot was the author to the snowy range diamond area guidebook.

Some of the Colorado high peaks are pretty good ski hills too. The Grizzly Couloir on Grizzly Peak near Independence Pass is one of my favorites:

I've got a shot of Ice Mtn, I'll throw it up after a bit...
(didn't do any turns, just scrambled up a ridge).

Coming right up. Ice Mtn looking pretty bare. I bet the Refrigerator Couloir would be a good ski hill too.

That looks like it was shot from a plane.
Is that maybe a view from what, Huron or somethin?

Here is one i'd like to go ski. Conundrum Couloir on Conundrum, next to Castle Peak in the Elk Range.


And here is one that I always wanted to climb, but never did. Has anyone here done it? Its the top of the steep couloir on Pacific Peak that has some very steep snow and ice and some rock.

Yeah, exactly right Tarbuster. The best thing about slogging up Huron is that view of the three Apostles. I did it one November, and they were especially gorgeous then - wish I had brought my camera with me.
