“In early October of 2015 Jesse Ramos and I had gone into the Holy Cross Wilderness to climb an ice route called Dismas. It was not in, and we both noticed a very beautiful line of snow and ice that went up the north face of Mt. of the Holy Cross (14,005′) that turned out to be the Angelica Couloir (II AI2 1,000′). Neither of us knew what the route was called or its difficulty, but we decided to make the long hike over to it. When we reached the base it appeared to be within our limit and we ended up soloing it. Upon hitting the ridge, the ice ended and we had a short hike to the summit.” [Photo] Jeremy Joseph @jeremyjoseph_photography, www.rawlandscapes.com @_j_e_s_s_e_
This week as part of the #alpinistcommunityproject, we’re sharing work from Jeremy Joseph, a photographer based in Carbondale, Colorado, where September heralds the last days to enjoy the high country without a pair of skis.
This is his second post.
