Terminal Cancer 2013

I have looked at many photos and videos over the years of Terminal Cancer. It has been on my list for some time and last week I was able to check it off my list. It is quite the couloir with perfect walls that run almost the entire 2000 vertical feet. I headed out to the Ruby's with my friends Dylan Crossman and his girlfriend Mckenna Peterson. We started a little late in the afternoon, but the couloir being a north facing chute we felt good about still getting after it. From the road the couloir looks very steep, but once in it and hiking it felt rather mellow. The Couloir is just wide enough to make rather good turns all the way down and we were lucky to find good chalky pow the entire couloir.

A look at the couloir from the road. Looks pretty intimidating at first.
A little river crossing to get to the skinning.
Dylan and Mckenna about half way up the couloir. It wasn't very steep, but it kept going and going and going. Much longer than it looked.

Sunshine and lunch on the top. Good views of the area.
Dylan making about a thousand tele turns down this couloir.
It was truly an amazing place to visit. One of the most beautiful couloirs I have ever had the pleasure of skiing.

Lone Peak Cirque and Desert Rock!! Where did my skis go?

Passion, one way or another. Six of one, half dozen of the other.
It was a low snow year making early access to the Alpine Rock way easier.

Lone Peak Cirque.  
 The summit face.
 Question Mark wall, Looking down on lake Utah.
 Brennan, Bret, and I getting geared up for Triple Overhang.
Because I'm the newest to Rock climbing, I get the lead on the 5.10a Overhangs.
Much like skiing a big mountain line, it's all in your head.
View from my sleeping bag.
 Base camp, with ice cold running water.
 Alpine Granite has this guy hooked.
 Dropping back down to the SCL heat.

Well the snow is still out there to get, but as you can see I've changed gears.
Desert trip!!
 Ancient Art.
 Here we are getting ready for the cat walk.
And yes I free climbed the 5.11a that most aid.
 The wind was a bit scary.The feeling was amazing though.
 I still make these when I go to the beach.

When you're in the desert, you have to get as much of it as you can.
Indian Creek was just a skip away.
 Super Crack!
Some off width.
We did a couple of days at the creek but I failed to get good photos.

Till next time thanks for looking.
