Treacherous Descent

Uploaded by: thunderweather

Saturday September 29, 2012

Cloudripper, CA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: descending Cloudripper via the west chutes, probably one of my most difficult descents, mostly class 3 climbing with some class 4 moves and a LOT of LOOSE ROCK! Every step I took would cause a big rock slide. Small rocks falling from hundreds of feet above pelted me all the way down. I was glad to have taken the helmet that morning. It was a last minute decision.

Scary! My husband ended up in the Mammoth hospital after attempting such a descent. Great shot, though, with great colors.

I hate DOWNS - and downs with loose rocks are on my list of things to avoid. Great job.

Nice picture, but I can enjoy descending only when I can observe the countryside and not have to concentrate on a treacherous path.
