An awesome exploratory day that worked out great. When I'm not hanging out in parking lots drinking beer, sometimes I like to snowboard. Sorry there aren't any riding shots of splitters, although it is always nice to run into the hooligans of the BC at gas stations and trailheads :wink:.

Some dirt-walking, a bunch of creek-skinning, some cramponing, some more skinning, followed by scoured-ridge-hiking-while-being-blasted-by-the-wind-action led to this incredible sidewalk in the sky leading to the summit. Very nice.

Great views from the top in all directions.

Mono Lake and the desert.

This is a pretty sick, random, aesthetic summit from which you can ride right off of the top.

Pretty darn neato if I do say so myself.

This was followed by the 3000+ ft ride out to the sage and the cars :guinness: . I like it when a plan comes together.

You don't even know how many times I've wanted to ride that face! Cool to see it up close for the first time.

Are you Preston?

If so, it was nice to meet you (again?) this last weekend. Nice lines.

Cheers!

(PS..I'm Josh)

'Sup Preston!

Yeah, I've got some pretty good ones. North Couloir on D was really good! I'm about 4-5 TRs behind, so after this weekend I'll try to get caught up and post some stuff.
