The North Couloir on Commonwealth Peak, seen 2 days prior to our attempt from Repeater Mountain. After we bailed 3 quarters up the chute, we climbed the peak on the right hand skyline, or west ridge.
checking out the line, luckily the route finding is pretty straight forward.
turn around point in the couloir, below a 4 meter smooth rock step.
No room for big mountain turns,
Andrew on the exposed west ridge.
On top of Commonwealth Peak enjoying a little clearing.
This picture is also taken 2 days prior to our decent, when I spotted the line skiing with Raphael. To his left you can see the tracks of the regular Tryst Lakes Chutes, to his right is our line, lets call it Fist Chute.
Craig McGee dropping in the very steep entrance of the Fist Chute. Another lucky clearing of the weather, it was snowing hard 15 min later
