 Last day of winter?   

It took a few days to get this up since I had to wait for my skiing mates to send me their pics. I pulled the experienced backcountry move called "water bottle in pack without lid". My DSLR was the casualty. The only negative to a great day.

So we saw an Antero TR recently that had a great pic of Cronin's east face. Looked yummy.


Homi, Brian, and myself met up early and headed over to the Baldwin Gulch TH, which is still heavily covered with snow all the way to the junction at Chalk Creek, Rd 162. We made good time booting up the trail. The weather was as good as it gets for the last day of winter in CO. A day that Capitol Peak went down. So on to the pics.

Then the payoff (I got to go first):

Really fun day with great partners. 12 miles and 4,500 vert in just under 6.75 hours.
