Shuksan: Anatomy of a Bail 2/2/11
I had the chance to engage in my first true Bail in a long time on tuesday. I left the Baker parking lot at 7 am with the goal of skiing the North Face of Mt. Shuksan. I was going solo, I was happy with the stability and really wanted to take advantage of a good weather window.
I pushed hard and topped out on the white salmon at 10:30. I think I pushed a little too hard up the white salmon because it took me until 12 to cross the upper curtis to the flats above the north face. I ate some lunch and examined my recon photos from the parking lot. I dropped in right on the line and was excited by the firm wind-buff that covered the start of the line.
