North Traverse Peak: NW Face and W Face

On June 8, 2007, Dave Bourassa, Mark Caveliero, and I went up the Bighorn Creek Trail and skinned to the end of the valley. We decided at that point to climb N Traverse Peak. That we did, but there was no continuous ski line from the summit. Mark and I went down a steep face on the NW side while Dave found a gully that went down the W side, though he had to scramble through some rocks near the end. Possibly these lines, and others in the area, would be better earlier in the season. But really, the end of this valley is not a great ski destination. Here is a view of the north side of NorthTraverse Peak with the face that Mark and I skied,

And here is the large west face, with Dave wondering: "Where do I go now?"
