The Sickle.

Skied the Sickle Couloir off of the shoulder of Horstmann on Saturday.  Great weather all day.  It was a long slog due to the road still being buried.  It was worth it.

It's a classic steep line that I am glad to have been able to do this year.  Some friends slogged into it last week and nailed it and so I was lucky to have inside information that it was good to go!  Thanks!

There's a few more classics on the list this year.  As my friend Bob says, "It's better to be lucky than good!"  I hope he's right!
