Trip: Colfax Beta photo - Cosley-Houston and Polish Route

Date: 5/7/2017

Trip Report:

Photos from 7 May, 2017. From the iphone, sorry they're not more detailed.

Looks like Cosley-Houston and the Polish Route are both in on Colfax. CH looks fat. Polish Route looks like it touches down, but I think the pillar is still free-hanging.

We were just up there to ski. Have fun.

From Frank Huster's insta (this is best beta photo):

Approach Notes:
~2miles of snow on road, went up Grouse Creek to Heliotrope Ridge. Stream crossings are getting interesting, but it's passable on the west side of Grouse.
