Bloody Mountain, CA - 3/24/08 7 Years, 8 Months ago  
Access from Reno, NV
US 395 south
Sherwin Creek Road southwest to snow closure
Drive Time: ~2:40

I skinned up Sherwin Creek Road, then the 4WD road to Laurel Lakes, then up to the base of Bloody Couloir of Bloody Mountain. I cramponed up the couloir to the summit. I measured the slope angle at 45 degrees. I skied the couloir finding powder for the first 200 then a solid wind crust for the remainder. The ski down Laurel Lakes drainage was enjoyable on corn.
Elevation: ~5400
Distance: ~14 miles
Time: ~6:50
