Name of this line?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

This is right next to St.Mary's Glacier. I scoped it out and was interested in skiing it this year but I didn't have a partner and wasn't going to risk it solo.

 

I posted it on 14ers.com but no one had an idea either, I figured a prominent line like this might have a name given by people who've skied/ridden it before.

 

 

 

A month or so later

Nobody, anywhere seems to know. Guess I'll have to come up with a name

I think you have to ski it before you can name it?

I haven't given it a name yet tongue.gif

Not gonna ski it unless I can find a partner either.

Looks tasty. How wide is that neck? From the pictures, looks like it could be anywhere from 3-10 feet.

 

What would you guess- 50* pitch?

I ran up the glacier a couple of weeks ago. Took this pic of the remaining snow in the middle of the line. Looks like it's between 45-50. The cornice on top is over 50, or you can go around it (which I would probably do the first try at least)



Let me know if you're interested. I live up in St.Mary's, so if you are I'll PM you and send you a couple of pictures once the snow falls.

The neck is 3-5 feet depending on snow depth.

The pucker factor on this will be high! I do want to ski it but might chicken out when standing at the top.

Sorry, its a bit too far from my neck of the woods. Looking forward to a TR, though.

Did you check on TGR? Someone there would likely know if it's named. And no, you don't get to name it unless you ski it first. :rules:

lol I know.

 

 

I know it's been skied because I've seen tracks. I'm sure I'll get a lot of "JONG" and "noob" feedback before I get anything useful.:duel:

Maybe but, it's only the internet. Someone will give you the straight answer. Eventually.

You'd be surprised, I think. After you get asked for pics of your sister, I expect somebody will be happy to share beta on that line with you.

 

If not, you can always challenge them to a Dolphin-turn throwdown. That always gets TGR on your side.

Probably, his thread will die then someone will randomly see it in 4 years and leave a comment with the name of the run and a bunch of beta on it.  Such is the way of the internet.
