Maybe a good year for some X-country passes

Postby mokelumnekid » Mon May 28, 2012 2:58 pm

that are usually vexed by steep snow. In addition to being a low water year good for some canyon travel (see my post below, "Unothodox..."), it may also be a good year for some passes that normally don't go without some steep snow travel or manuvering, like say, Granite Bear, Cataract Creek (Observation) or Packsaddle. Just a thought. :waving

and if you do go over some cross country passes, document your journey in the new Information Booth section on Cross Country passes at viewforum.php?f=31

Hi MK,
With any luck, my better half & I will be climbing Taboose next week on our way to Amphitheater (via Upper Basin Crossing) and the Dumbbells. With even more luck, I'll come back with a TR. That said, I kind of prefer falling on snow vs rock.........and have plenty of scars to show for the trouble.
