North Cleaver route Mt. Adams. #toughroute#skidescent#nocrowds

A few years ago, I went up Coalpit with @carolinegleich and we cleaned out the absolute mess of random, tattered ropes that dotted various trees around The Waterfall that guards the exit of the Coalpit Headwall #skidescent. Most of the ropes were ancient and in tatters.
It was always my intention to return the following winter to replace the public handline so people wouldn't have to carry a rope to do this exit, since that pleasant situation had greeted me on all my previous visits. Unfortunately, Mother Winter didn't cooperate, and low elevation snow was scant the following two winters.
To the good, I carried in a rope and finally finished the job Tuesday. It was pretty apparent no one had been through that way this year. So, sorry to those souls like @brodyleven and @perpetualweekend who bothered to pass through during the extremely low tide. For everyone else who has been waiting for better conditions though, things are as they once were.
And that line didn't get there a moment too soon, either. From no tracks on Tuesday, to our visit Thursday, a half dozen people had already passed through. Including the @straightchuter, who has left behind MANY anchors that I've used while touring the #Wasatch. Glad I could return a favor for a change. (Though you can guess he had his own rope along, eh?) @skimo_co demonstrates: no harness required, either. #skimountaineering #publicservice #careforyourforest

Welcome back @andrzejbargiel !! Prosto z Broadpeaku do upalnego Bielska ;) #suntleones #pajaksport #broadpeak #skidescent

August turns at 5,000m? Why not. Getting the last of the northern hemisphere ski season on The highest peak in Europe. Skiing off one of the #sevensummits is an all-time adventure! #skielbrus .

Skiing Mt St Elias was one of my top 5 best experiences of my life. Here @janelle.smiley captures @jediahporter and myself making thoughful turns at around 12,000' above the ocean...which can be seen in the distance. The film we created to show the experience is now live. Check it out by clicking the link in my profile. It is best viewed from a 92" plasma screen in HD, so send the link to the biggest screen you have, dim the lights, and enjoy with a friend. #lifeexperiencedeposit

The first ~1800m of altitudedifference of my #skidescent & #hike down to #Zermatt the 4th of july. The photo I took the 23 of july on the beautiful way to the #Monterosahut. You can see the #Triftjiridge on the northface of the Western #Breithorn 4164m and the hike down to the #Gornerglacier. After I had to hike other 750 altitudemetres down to #Zermatt. I really wanted to ski also the Betthmann-Hollweg-Supersaxo-Route, which is another #iceclimbingroute on the #Breithornnorthface, but the conditions in this july and august have not been got enough. But I am really satisfied with the Triftjiridge in summer in this record dry year in the #alps with perfect weather.

I'm pretty psyched to finish the #Elbrus season on top with an incredibly successful climb and this crew. A ski descent off the summit was the icing on the cake! Although people will continue to climb this season, the mountain is melting out and temps are scorching. We're off for a few days touring St Pete's before heading home. It's been a memorable season with so many great people. Until next year!

It's not everyday you get to ski down one of the #SevenSummits! #whoop what an epic run, until we hit the summer slush at the bottom. A blue bird day, a tough climb, great gear from @mountaindesigns & @blackdiamond, a tweaked ankle, a heavy bout of altitude sickness and a big smile. Loved this #adventure with @climbingthesevensummits .

Mount Hood, called Wy'east by the Multnomah tribe, is a potentially active stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc of northern Oregon #endlesswinter #mountain #alpine #summit #hoodsummit #glaciers #iceclimber #skidescent #skihood #mthood #mthoodnationalforest #mthoodoregon #wyeast #oregon #volcanicash #oldchute

Got my ass handed to me today, but it was super cool to have bagged my first #fourteener #skidescent. #mtmassive #14421ft #neversummer #sufferfest #ibetterbeskinnyafterthis @nm_fisharefriends_notfood

Made our way up Mount Matier yesterday via the Northeast Spur. We were lucky to catch this glimmer of sunshine from the summit as the clouds rolled in. Skied the gnarly, icy/hard packed NW Face on the descent. Getting to be pretty late season for skiing, even up high. With @jobin_alexandre and Tobias Huxol.
