Mount Dade, CA - 4/18/08 9 Years, 4 Months ago  
Access from Reno, NV:
US 395 south
Rock Creek Road west to snow closure

I skinned up to the base of Hourglass Couloir of Mount Dade, then booted up to the top of the couloir. I skinned up the southeast face until there was no longer consistent snow, then climbed up boulders to the summit. The snow on the descent was soft on the southeast face, smooth, wind-affected powder in the upper couloir, heavily wind-affected powder in the lower couloir, then smooth and soft in the apron and down the valley. I measured the slope angle in the couloir at 41 degrees.
Elevation: 3725
Distance: 13 miles
Time: 6 h
