North America, United States, Washington - Cascade Mountains, Bonanza Peak, Western Summit, Great North Couloir

Bonanza Peak, Western Summit, Great North Couloir. On May 31 Mark Fielding and I climbed this 50° 2200-foot-high couloir to the 9400-foot summit. Recent snowfall allowed for good step-kicking, except for a few ice patches, where anchored belays were required. We barely avoided occasional small avalanches. Grade IV.
