Corn conditions on the Eastside were looking prime time for the coming week, so Shane and I decided to spend some quality time down there to explore. Day 1 we got an early start, but got lost trying to find Mt. Tom's parking area. So we kept driving up Pine Creek, and out of the canyon walls stretches Scheelite Chute, rising 6,000 vertical feet to just over 13,000ft near Bishop. Conditions were variable. By the time I reached the top, the narrow summit couloir had gone from full sun to mostly shade, and the corn had begun to ice back up at around 2pm, leaving a mix of ice, corn, and breakable crust. Below the couloir was a mix of perfect corn and avy debris. A fantastic day all in all.
