    yeah that was a nice bump

    N face of Philistine - couloir is about 400m. Face is 1000m
    Attachment 281538

    N face of Howard - couloir part we booted was also about 400m. Entire face is 750m
    Attachment 281539

    Mixing it up - just out side Vancouver - Brunswick Peak - maybe 150m couloir?

    Am I dumb? I feel like I can't match those two pictures.
    Is researcher's pic showing the line with the arrow in the second one?

    And yeah, Lee I'm not seeing your pictures from the other post

    I had the same thought, but I think they are just taken from very different angles and distance.

    That's because they are 2 different lines, you're correct. The one with the arrow is located in the saddle between Tiedemann and Combatant, whereas Researcher's pic is of the actual Combatant Couloir from the 50 classics

    Grand daddy seems to be the iconic one on bow peak but I've always considered the "funnel of death couloir" aesthetic perfection. Guessing it's pretty much 3000' to the fan. Always has a freight train of a cornice across the top of the funnel. Click image for larger version.

    Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

    Lea - how does one get to Brunswick Cl in winter? I've done it a few times in the summer and I can image that last ridge is passable in winter - other than perhaps roped and walking on the cornice?

    I came at it via the Lions Bay parking lot via Mt Harvey trail then over to Magnesia Meadows then exited out via Hat Peak

    July 1st photo of a line off Mount Monolith in Tombstone Territorial park, Yukon. Certainly not the best and not all that long, but very aesthetic and located in a pretty unique place. I've seen a few reports of people skiing in there, so it's probably been skied.

    I asked Dave and Reuben who went there to ski in Tombstone and it was thin even in a fat fat snow year. Tombstone generally gets very little snow Fwiw. But good memories of summer hiking there!
