Nothing on Shuksan?


The North Face route is a great winter climb but it doesn't make Ade's list because it is too easy. For some guys around here it is a ski route.


No easy is fine. Da Tooth and Chair are in for that very reason. Accessibility is more important than difficulty in some respects.

Whitehorse - Alpine Banana or whatever they called that couloir


Hall Peak - definitely has super easy access and the potential for some pretty big WI lines. A bit subalpine for superclassic status but worthy destination none the less.


Lake 22 - Headwall looks big with easy access


Sloan Peak - The best looking winterline that everyone knows about yet no one has yet to climb


N Twin Sister - Agreed that the west ridge is a semi-popular and fun winter climb


Shuksan - Everyone climbs the N Face but there are obviously many other interesting moderate mixed line strewn about the NW side of the mountain with easy access.


Washington Pass Area??


Early Morning Couloirs

W Face Couloir on Silverstar

other stuff?
