The last day of April ended with a bang, and the first day of May came in just as strong, with more snow and winter-like weather. Brittany and I were joined by usual suspects Rob Dickinson and Tom Runcie, plus Ron Pankey and Eric Freson. We considered a number of different areas, but in the end decided to check out a zone that Eric and Ron knew. While it isn’t the world’s most secretive zone, I tend to keep areas that people show me secret, therefore I’ll refer to this zone as “La Zona Rosa”, after the hip Mexico City neighborhood. It’s just fun to say “Zona Rosa”.
With a tremendous looking “quarter slot” couloir above us, Eric, Rob, Tom, and I decided to head that way for our second run, while Ron and Brittany decided to take another quick lap. Looking down the slot:
