Name that couloir!?!

Discussion in 'General' started by Joseph.szasz, Apr 30, 2013.

  1. I'm curious if anyone knows the name ( if its named) of the first major chute on the left, below the East Willow Creek waterfalls. This would be the big chute that empties into the first bowl below Steven's lake. If there is no name someone should name it. Thanks everyone.

    Joe, is that the chute that runs from the Top of East Willow and drops West? If so, I sat at the top of that on the perfect day to ride it this season, but I was solo and there can be high consequeces in there is shit got real... In my avatar it is just left of where my hand is pointing and drops West.. Iwanted to call it MikeyB's since he was the one who showed it to me in pictures and I was going to film him dropping it this season.. Until he broke his foot.

    Yeah.. we have been eyeing that one for awhile now. Made plans to check it off before the injury.

    It's a solid 40 deg, 1400ft descent into the basin there.

    While most everything else up around Stevens Peak has a local name, I don't think this one is named yet since it's a bit out of the way for most tours.
