Traverse the needles

We recently had the pleasure of supporting Coleman Kane, Matthew Cecil and Dylan Elder on an exciting ski traverse mission in the San Juans. Their goal was to complete a ski travers of the West Needles, starting with a West Needle Couloir decent, summiting and skiing South Twilight and Twilight, then finishing with 4th of July on North Twilight, all complete in three days. Mission accomplished.

Join us at 6pm on May 16th at Pine Needle Mountaineering for a presentation exploring their mission including the exciting hurdles they encountered, preparation and planning, useful gear used, lessons learned, funny stories, and much more. This presentation is sure to be a good one that you wont want to miss.
