 Citadel Ridge - Video Report  

Beautiful day on the Citadel Ridge, link to trip video below. We took the class 4 gully just before Snoopy's Collar just cause it looked like fun. It was pretty loose at the bottom but became real fun near the top. I couldn't find a name for it but we were calling it the 'OK' coulier as we went up it, mostly because we were happy to still be ok given how loose everything was. If anyone knows of a more proper name please let me know.

For the impatient types:

the snow climb starts at 3:00
the rock climb at 5:50
Megan finds out how loose the rock in the gully is at 7:15
topping out on the airy north west summit starts at 8:55
the ridge traverse begins at 9:50

Music by Bjork, Peter Bjorn, Beastie Boys, DeVotchKa, Sigur Ros, and Primus.

I hope you enjoy!

It was a GoPro... the resolution is way better in the original, once you upload it, it loses a lot. Thanks though.
