  • La Sal Linkup 4/8

    La Sal Linkup 4/8

    No real write up for this one, but a cool little solo linkup of the three tallest peaks in the La Sals that I managed to sneak in on the way home after dropping Taryn off at her course.

    North Ridge of Pfeifferhorn – 2/12

    It’s been a very dry mid-winter and even the sheltered north-facing slopes are getting grim. Determined to find some excuse to get up into the high mountains, Hunter and I decided to check out the North Ridge of Pfeifferhorn.

Immediately the Northwest Couloir of Pfeifferhorn came…
