Y Couloir, Mount Ypsilon
I turned to Phil & Mark and stated the obvious here, "That was our last picket - everyone be cool." Often rated AI2 5.4, the Y Couloir gave us unconsolidated AI3 snow, a wet 5.7 slab in mountaineering boots, and a 5.6 face which we frontpointed with flexible crampons - yikes! Great fun. photo by shorty, 7/97.
