|2014-06-28||Route: Savage Couloir
Info: Snow is discontinuous to the summit, but the route is still in at least for climbing. We had to bail due to rockfall/warming temps. Evidence of copious rockfall is present in the snow. Approach is dry, don‘t leave the trail too early. Creek crossings were no issue.

Info: Found a snow bridge across the creek, so no log balancing shenanigans required. Not sure how long it will last. Top of the direct finish a little melted out, maybe 5-10 feet of scree scrambling. Left hand finishes looked worse. We came down the boot skiing bowl, which was exciting with a thin layer of glycerine snow over hard neve. Some postholing on hike out, but mostly avoidable by carefully choosing the darker snow.
|2013-05-26||Route: Savage Couloir
Info: Savage Couloir is in nice shape right now. Saw evidence of recent rockfall in couloir but didn‘t experience any during the climb. We were able to climb good snow all the way to the summit. Snow angle is around 40 degrees for the most part and up to 45-50 for very short sections. The approach is 99 percent snow, skis or snowshoes are definitely needed.
