3/12/2011 – Dragon’s Tail Couloir in RMNP has deceived me twice before this day, but with solid conditions and a comfortable late morning start, it was time to conquer this classic line. Casey, Ryan and I headed up to get after this line each with our own personal motivation for being there. Casey was on his first attempt, Ryan on his second, and I was there for redemption after a big crash in the couloir back in November. Turns out ‘third times the charm’ and I got to finally check Dragon’s Tail off my list. Conditions were boiler-plate/ice-sheet and kept us on our toes. Here are a select few shots from the day.
