Heading off to the St-Elias

Well we are off, a 30 hour drive and then wait for a weather window to fly us into the St-Elias range,  drop off near Mt-Walsh and Mt-Steele. Spend 2.5 weeks climbing and skiing off Steele (5th highest in Canada), Lucania (3rd highest) and then Walsh and any other feasible objective.

 

It should be amazing, and I will have a wicked movie for everyone afterwards.

I headed out early this morning to try and add some more summits to my list. Part of this challenge is to try and ski 2 million feet but also try and climb and ski off 100 summits. I was at 33 till today. I honestly did not know what I was going to do.

Getting to the pass by 6:15am I decided I would head up to Mt-Abbott, a peak that is generally closed due to snow studies. Pretty wild ridge led me to the summit by 9:30, I then leaned forward and watched my new Iphone slide out of my pocket and down 600 ft. Luckily it seems to be working, but the phone is acting a little funny.

Up Mt-Afton, down its west side into the lilly and then up Swanzy before it got too hot. Summit of Swanzy, down and up Clarke, back down creamy corn skiing and then around and up the south side of Mt-Bonney.

Summit of Bonney by 3 and then down the south east and back up Swanzy. Down through some warm isothermal snow back up to the top of the Dome and home.

The look of someone who has just hiked 13 500 ft. 

Since Jan 1 2010: 38 summits climbed with 797,085 feet so far.
