The objective for the day was the Pinner Chute on Laurel Mountain. This couloir is roughly 4000 ft of rock lined, moderate worry free fun in an area that reminds me of the Hogum Fork area (on a slightly larger scale) back home.

To me, the greater ranges of the world include the Alaska Range, the Himalaya, and now the Sierra Nevada. After this quick trip, I have multiple potential projects brewing in the dark corners of my mind. Spring road trip anyone?
