Northwest Couloir of Pfeifferhorn – 3/28

Spring has finally arrived in the Wasatch, and with it the chance to ski bigger lines. Taryn’s MCAT studying is in full swing, so when she informed me that she could take Sunday off I quickly ran through my mental list of Wasatch lines I’ve had my eye on.

Taryn and I had planned a mid-July roadtrip to the PNW to bike, run, climb and see some friends. A last minute positive Covid-19 test in the Seattle friend group left us with no plans and itching for adventure. With Salt Lake City literally hotter than the sun, we decided to at least escape to […]

The Elephants Perch – 7/3-7/5

I decided to use the long Fourth of July weekend to check out The Elephant’s Perch in the Sawtooths in Idaho. Hunter and I drove up Thursday night and slept near Redfish Lake. We made it to the marina in time to catch the first boat shuttle of the day. What a cool way to […]
