Trip: Early Morning Spire - SW Face

Date: 9/12/2017

Trip Report:
It's that time of year for this one. Check out the NOCA climbing conditions blog for some photos and information about our recent trip into the Marble Creek cirque to climb EMS. We found conditions to be great, with the route totally dry and the approach/descent still in reasonable condition. We did a different descent than Nelson's book describes, which involved downclimbing North then West and doing a single rappel to the Marble Creek Glacier.

Gear Notes:
Medium rack to 2"

Approach Notes:
Standard Eldorado approach then over to Dorado Col.

Awesome, love that route! Thanks for the descent beta. We went over Marble Needle, which was also OK.
