Craig Mountain, Gunsight Couloir

CraigGunsight5

This couloir is easy to see from the north end of Wallowa Lake and periodically on the West Fork. It’s been on my mind for awhile and I did attempt it earlier this winter. Glad I finally had a chance to get up there as it’s a classic couloir; steep, lined with tall rock, and a great ski.

Looking through the sights. The upper third was 50 degrees tapering to 40 degrees for the remainder

Great day, great snow and a great ski.
