Maude North Face Ice Couloir?

Recommended Posts

This sounds interesting. I wonder if any of you have climbed this. http://www.summitpost.org/show/route_link.pl/route_id/108/object_id/230

 

This year probably isn't a good year for it, though. A fellow I met on Maude who had scrambled Seven Fingered Jack, was surprised we'd succeeded on the N. Face Route, because he said it looked melted out. I am sure he had the couloir route confused with the N. Face route.

I think this is also called the Yoder Couloir...

Ross Peritore and Jason Cassarino climbed it and the NF in March of '04. We took a quick peek at it when we did the NF and it was too melted out to ski but still looked like a decent climb.

Hard for me to say because I haven't actually been in the couloir, but....Probably right about now would be too late. I'd say it's probably good into mid July. Keep in mind, snowpack generally didn't end up too bad above 7000ft. this year because of the wetness we've had the last few months.

Yeah we climbed and skied it near the end of March '04. Not sure about when it would melt out, it is pretty protected between two ribs. Its a cool route because it is thin and super straight, and ascends to a tiny notch about 100' below and E of the summit.

-The NE Couloir follows the first sun/shadow line left of the summit. The Entiat Icefall is below the larger notch farther left.
