      This one has officially moved up higher on the winter list....

      Hillman, Im thinking the approach from around past L.Arnold would be best, instead of through the trap...that way we slide down what we came up and KNOW what we are deaaling with...alot safer that way....speaking of safer, U got a beacon and avy gear? I gots a beacon, probe, and shovel.

        Climbed the Trap Dike two days ago, and descended via the 1990 slide. Absolutely spectacular. Here are a couple photos of the 1990 slide. Hopefully I'll have a Trip Report done by next week.

          I have a shovel and probe, but no beacon yet. I will have it before winter though. I plan on taking the level 1 avy course somewhere this season also.

            Rico, those shots are pretty cool. Reminds me of:

              Ha! Look at the trees in the background... both your first photo and my first photo were taken about 30 feet from each other!

                The same wind bent tree is behind us. Great spot, eh? When Dominic and I climbed it a few weeks ago I suggested to him that we do just what you did. Up the Dyke, down the 1990 slide. He thought that was nuts but I know he'll do it. A new sport: summer slide descending.

                  I did that same trip several years ago and then climbed Algonquin and back out. Absolutely thought I was going to die! What a rough trip.

                    Oh Ya, Wouldn't descending the Eagle Slide be a Ball of Fun? Or should I say, "a ball of skin," when you started rolling to the bottom of it!

                      You know... That picture did it for me. Friday, I'm heading down to do a blowdown sweep on Street&Nye, but I think I will first take a run up that Colden slide. I remember passing it with my kids on the way to CLiff/Redfield, soon after that slide slid. For years I've been telling myself I want to do it. Yep, in about 37 hours from now, I'll be walking up that slide.

                      Thanks.
