What a great climb! A friend pointed me to this page and I thought it was interesting that this route finally has a name. I know of four or five other ascents of this route, a couple ski descents, and most or them were without a helo. (I know mine wasn't- couldn't afford it!)

Nice to see it established on the Internet- I'm not a mountain project guru but wanted to register and say good work but check yourself before claiming a FA!

See you around town!

Yea we couldn't find ANYTHING about the FA so we figured we'd post it up here to see what we got. Thanks for the info, do you have any information on the FA?
