Ebbetts Pass, July 1, 2017

Ebbetts Pass had just opened the previous day. Pat and I set up a car shuttle to ski "Chinese Fireball Dragon Chute" down to Kinney Reservoir.

Pat on the warm and dry portion of our downclimb (or rappelling without a rope) into what is left of Chinese Fireball Dragon's head.
