Grizzly Gulch - April 20, 2007

Scott & Oliver

After our great day on April 7 in that area ( ) we wanted to hit it one more time.

Unfortunately the snow was not too great since it was quite wind affected.

The snow was quite grabby and turning was hard. Scott threw in the towel but I wanted to hit at least one more line. So I hiked back up the west ridge of Grizzly and hit a couloir.
