Mount Crowe – a Different Route

We took a rather different approach to Mount Crowe today. First, let me say it was sunny – which was, of course, simply awesome! And so very warm – no jacket for most of the day. Bonus!

I loved the route up past the Mosquito Cabin. The views were lovely, the group was wonderful. In other words – it was perfect.

And then we went Ben’s “new” way down. How can I put this? There were thrills, chills and plenty of spills. No one knew exactly where they were going – but we did get down – in one piece, I may add. However, did I mention spills? Did I say that a couple of people got stuck in tree wells? Did I mention the 30-plus degree slopes without powder? Slipping and sliding. Yep – that was us.

My opinion? Nice to know which slope on Mount Crowe not to go down again.

The day? Perfect, of course.
