Default Finally Bagged Reynolds

This entire season I have wanted to bag this bowl. It wasn't epic conditions, and it was already farmed out. I can at least check it off of the list. The skin in was pretty mellow even though I took a million breaks it seemed. I blame running 15 miles and then grabbing the split I went up with Ryan and we had a pretty fun day. We timed the south facing exit perfect to where the crust wasn't there but it was more like a slushee.


Standing on top of the ridge line, you can see the Oquirhh mountains




Raymond which is a line I want to bag


Looking over into Day's Fork


Here is another one on the list. Gobblers and someone had some ballsy tracks down it.


Here is another one on the list. God's Lawnmower. Slide Path you think?


The view of of Reynolds. I want to hit this bad boy on an untouched day. A nice steep bowl mmmmm


Ryan is in there somewhere. I didn't feel comfortable dropping the line that had more south in the aspect so we stuck with where the tracks were. Wasn't feeling a wet slide today.

Part of the skin in


Little Water Peak. We originally talked about bagging that summit then hitting Reynolds, but I was too tired.

Nice doesn't look like it was in to bad of shape, sure wish I wouldn't have had to work today!

Picked up a Marmott Genisis(S&C) on friday that won't be soak and wet in a matter 30 minutes on those wet days.

Bangin' ass photos...I love black and white. And Mt. Raymond is gonna happen some day..it's one that hasn't left my mind since I saw it snow covered for the first time at the end of 2011.
For those interested: this part of Reynolds bowl was east facing, 46deg slope (measured at the top to approx the slope as a whole). The line started at Reynolds Peak at 9422' to somewhere around 9000' where snowvols took the photo of the bowl.

What am I the only one that asks themselves before they drop in What Would Burt Reynolds Do?

I have never thought that before, but now I have a feeling I am. Right before I drop in I will start laughing every time now
