Whitehorse via the standard route


Official Mountaineers climb (with Art & Jeff and Brett Dyson and Sloan Brockman and a couple other guys.) Left cars at 6:00 AM, summitted at about 1:00, single strand rappel off the summit while Art skied it, back to cars at 6:30 after about 7,200 total elevation gain. Snow was really soft. Thanks to Brett and Frank Miles for some of these images. (cover page is a summer shot taken from downtown Darrington on a bike tour in 2005) Here’s Brett’s video of Art skiing. Here’s Art’s posting on “turns all year“.
