Tour Ronde – Gervassutti Couloir
80cm’s of new snow in the past week we decided to give the biggest peaks another day to settle so we set our sights on the Gervassutti couloir on the Tour Ronde. This 1500 foot 50 degree couloir has been on my personal ski list for some years. A beautiful peak with an esthetic sustained…

It is a steep overhanging dihedral system stacked with steep cracks that stay dry, even…

Angels Crest! Summer is on it’s way.
As of last week the climb is completely dry thanks to the strong Howe Sound winds and the sunny skies of spring. Few climbs in Squamish serve up the zesty taste of alpine justice like the Angels Crest Arete. Several steep pitches punctuate a half kilometer of ridgework with showstopping positions along the serrated spine…
