Feather Peak, Feather Peak Couloir. In December Mike Grabor and I climbed the left-hand branch of the couloir on Feather Peak’s north face via six pitches of moderate, enjoyable ice climbing. Although the angle never exceeded 60°, the beautiful setting and unusually good December weather made for a fine alpine route. The summit register gave no indication that the gulley had previously been ascended. NCCS III.
