    killing it
    I can't believe you are a rando racer because I look so much better in Lycra than you.

    People who don't think the Earth is flat haven't skied Vail.

    Great TR on a great line.

    I would think a line that aesthetic would get hit often.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Woot woot! Gnarwhale's pic of the edge sharpener sure puts things into a little more perspective. Yikes!

    First reason is few people ski Timp. Second reason, it's not in any guidebooks.
    Third reason is it's more complex logistically and with route finding than most routes on Timp. It's hard to get a good look at it from anywhere to see if the line goes from top to bottom, so the commitment involved in more than just skiing something like the Grunge, where you KNOW it goes.

    It's a classic on Timp in terms of exposure and commitment, but for just pure joy of turning, perhaps the East Ridge on the south peak, or the West Face routes are a bit more aesthetic.

    Awesome stuff. Nice work waiting for the right conditions - an admirable and smart demonstration of patience.

    Is Nohow rocking dyanfits for all big approaches now? Just curious as I know he was on AT gear for that Revelations trip as well.

    Cool stuff all around. Thanks for sharing. And excellent work!

    Sweet. Impressive line. Fun to adventure and tick stuff off your list. Way to get after it. Successful stoke!

    No, seems like Noah's just AT'ing when little skis are advantageous (eg firm and steep). Andy and Noah said they hiked a 14,000+ foot day earlier this week on their BMF tele gear.

    I've been thinking about this TR since you posted it and I am so jealous. Nice line and all, but you have 5 friends of similar commitment, fitness, and ability that show up at the trailhead early. There are barely 6 total people here that do anything like what I do.

    Well done.

    This TR is full of many kinds of win! Thanks, I needed that.

    That's quite the, er, probe you've got there, GW.

    Beautiful line. How do you think those cruxes would go on a slightly less endowed snow year? Would the hucks be manageable or would the rock support a handline/pins?

    10 foot huck or so to modestly steep landings with typically shitty, hard pack snow to land on, with big consequences if you don't stick the landing. There are options to get around them without hucking or rapping, but they involve traversing around the first one, and exiting the face to the south on the second one.

    I'm not a talented enough skier to want to do that. I need the snow coverage.

    Hey, hardly ever log in here anymore. Where are your pics? Link, because I'm lazy.

    Thanks.
