winter mountaineering - cold fusion couloir to north timp (11,441')

This climb is a classic climb of some 3,000' in the prominent couloir located at the north end of the Timpanogos massif. A 2+ hour approach preps one for the couloir itself. Then it's a false summit and a swooping climb further south to North Timp. This is a long day with an early start in the dark. A portion of the couloir approaches 50 degrees in slope angle; if you have not had extensive experience using crampons and ice ax on hard snow this is not the climb for you. I will vet each participant. Please use email to register and in that email please describe in detail the experience you have had using crampons/ice ax. As you might imagine, poor weather and/or unsuitable snow conditions may cause a postponement. I will personally check out the snow earlier in the week of the trip.
