THIS TRIP IS POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER.  IT MAY BE RESCHEDULED TO MAY 25.  CHECK FOR DETAILS LATER.

Snow climbing is very dependent on conditions, so the success of a climb or even to start a climb cannot be guaranteed.  Trips can be aborted, cancelled, changed or postponed as snow conditions and weather develop.  Bring snowshoes, ice axe, crampons, seat harness, carabiners, wind gear.  Couloir is about up to 60 degrees, Dead Elk has a small vertical step.  Depending on conditions, be ready to descend the couloir.
