high sierra radness

this guide to steep chutes and couloirs in the eastern sierra may appeal to some for the fluidity of jargon; to others for the word bergschrund. Me, it a) reminds me why the West is different than the East and b) scares the shit out of me. 50 slopes? fuck that. E.g., "Mt Williamson 14,375' North Couloir. This is a 45+ 1600' line that is rarely considered, let alone skied. It is remote and desperate with the most scenic setting imagineable. Nice soft snow and an azure sky will always make this alot less scary."
