descents of note:
spring 2004- Barrows Worm and John LeDrew rode Dead Dog Couloir.
5/7/2006- Erik Kling and Tom Courtright-Northwest face
5/2007- Zach Taylor and Jeremiah Allen ride the northwest couloir
5/17/2009-Barrows Worm rode the Emperor Face(also known as northeast face).
*no descent listed above are first descents as all of these lines(with the exception of the emperor face) are ridden every year. The Emperor Face is steep, complicated, and ave prone so it sees less traffic. We are pretty sure it has seen a decent few riders before this year though.
