featureless

Post by Bob T » Wed Aug 14, 2019 4:45 pm

Woods is in super shape right now. Wintry cold today at least. Yesterday was slurpyville. Sugarers are frustrated.

The featureless forest with a nice consolidated base and a few inches of fluff.

Charger BC'd up 1500' and really enjoyed the down.

Don't know why I wouldn't go out and do it again tomorrow. :)

Light snow falling. I'm going to have a hard time letting go of this season. Especially the love affair with this little stretch of woods.

TR - Delusions of Grandeur Slide

Post by Bob T » Wed Aug 14, 2019 5:08 pm

I like soloing because you can chicken out at any time and no one will know. What tour!? My legs are tired. The snow is rotten. Something doesn’t feel right. I’m just not feeling the love. Whatever. Abort! Sometimes I never even leave the house even though I’m packed and have a hall pass.

This tour wasn’t like that. I knew from the beginning that it would succeed and that yesterday was the day for it. It was actually kind of unsettling to tell you the truth. I left my whippets at home. I knew the snow was going to be cooperative. I knew I would find the head of the slide which is tricky. I knew these things in spite of not being able to pull this one off for over ten years! Really. That’s how long this line has been on my list.

Having done it though, I won’t do it again. It’s a stupid spruce choked line, but it was really sweet to pull off!

Step one. Spruce wrestle to the head of the slide.

Product placement.

Still looking for the head of the "slide". It can't be _this_ full of spruce, can it? Note the companion slide that is much more interesting. I've only been half way up that one and it's calling.
Image

Ah ha. Find something that is about the right size for what I've seen on the sat photos. Make a Clif Bloc offering to the local deities. Snack on some myself.
Image

And we're off!
Image

Looking back up. The upper section was kind of insane.
Image

Image

Image

Periodic linked turns.
Image

Finally get spit out at the bottom.
Image

Looking up at the "companion".
Image

From here there is quite a stretch of super juicy half pipe.

Over the river and through the woods.

The headwall of the cirque in the sunlight behind. Such a wonderful place.
