>I’m a few days late posting this, but a bunch of us hit Super Gully on Lost River Peak on Saturday. And I do mean a bunch. A total of 10 skiers and 3 climbers hit the peak that day. I don’t know what the record is, but that must be close.
Our group consisted of Al Jantz, Kevin Coble, Bob Marcinko, and myself. At the trailhead, we ran into Garon Miskin who was fresh off a recent ascent of White Line Couloir on 11,308. The five of us headed out about 5:30 am. Entering the Gully we found excellent cramponing conditions, which unfortunately gave way to a bit of a post hole epic. Garon led the way for a good bit of it, but he needs to eat a few more cheeseburgers, ‘cuz he wasn’t breaking through. The rest of us were. Many thanks for Garon and Bob for kicking steps for the rest of us.
Garon looking awfully perky for 6 am.
Al on his birthday!
Kevin and Bob returning from the true summit.
