At the trailhead..sage advice :-)
"Nice tights, you guys are idiots, I'm a guide, I know a lot."
Congrads to all involved!
Jared had already done it in 7:21 last month climbing and skiing wth 2 companions that continued on the traverse.
Nathan Brown, was dropped it to 7:15:33…car-to-car. Nate went solo, used steel crampons and two ice tools, Dynafit TLT5 Performance boots, custom 160cm Igneous, and down-climbed the Chevy Couloir, as opposed to rappelling.
Then the batman team went at it.
And just to add to the fun, Ptarmigan was skied last month as well.
Amazing spring conditions we are having!
