North Star, Butterknife

On June 7, 2011, I soloed this line, which I had seen so many times on my forays into the South Platte headwaters. I climbed from the bottom, which was a bit tedious over the rocks as it seemed to take forever to reach the summit ridge. Most parties do this by starting at Hoosier Pass, having left a car at Montgomery Reservoir. I was able to ski all the way down to the valley bottom, a vertical drop of 2000 feet. The line is bigger than it looks from the approach.
