Last weekend Gordon, Sonya, and I had the pleasure of climbing around Boulder, CO for 3 days. Following is a photo essay of an ascent we made of the 1st Flatiron via the route Fandango (III 5.5) on our first day.
The seasonal snowfall record for the Northern San Juans has been broken! A whopping 465″ of snow fell on Red Mountain Pass this season, surpassing the previous record of 445″ set in 1992-93. There is currently a tremendous amount of snow in the mountains and it is likely late-May and June will offer some of the best spring skiing conditions we have seen in years.
Yes, it’s true, today was a powder day. And with 9″ of new, cold snow it was a really good powder day! Actually, for May 11, it was pretty remarkable. Here are some photos from the “Serpentine” ski descent Jack and I did on Red Mountain #2.
