Old Glory

The Line.

With clear skies and mild temps we toured up Old Glory yesterday. Multiple fracture lines across the east face gave plenty of clues as to the poor stability, so we were on high alert as we skied the double hour-glass.  We were releasing small slabs the whole way down, and I cut out a fairly substantial section on the lower apron, but nothing we couldn’t manage. An adventurous descent.
