Perfect Conditions on Teakettle Mountain

Climbed Teakettle on Sunday with a couple nice folks from Colorado Springs. We got an early start and enjoyed perfect snow conditions both ways. The SW Couloir route has to be one of the highest quality alpine routes anywhere with that short an approach!
Here is the view of the summit block from the top of the snow ridge. solid and blocky climbing for 30 feet to the small perch on top.
Looking west through a notch near the top to Mt
Starting back down the ridge with Potosi in the background.
Alpine conditions are getting primo!
Cheers, CC
