Details

This is a steep couloir that may include a few class 4 or low class 5 moves depending on the snow coverage. You need to be comfortable on steep snow, moderate mixed terrain, and potentially some rock moves.  Depending on coverage, I will most likely be carrying a thin rope and some snow/ rock pro. I would recomend bringing a diaper harness or commercial harness in your pack so if need be we can belay.  Snowshoes or AT skis may be useful depending on the coverage at the time for travel, but the group will remian as one unless accompanied by a leader.  Plan on an early alpine start becasue Dragons Tail is a south facing couloir and is prone to wet slab avalanches. Contact me if you have questions! Mountain Project link for the climb: https://www.mountainproject.com/route/105747512/dragons-tail-couloir
