Alyeska headwall traverse

Although I didn't get out to explore as much as I would have liked to this summer, I did have a chance to do some of my favorite classic Girdwood things, like the Alyeska headwall traverse - we did it a little early in the season (late July), which meant we had some snow-based technical tennis shoe downclimbing, but we made it through and celebrated with some 7G fancy drinks!

Ummm, I'd really like to come back this winter and re-explore the lines behind me!!!

My lovely Girdwood below - I can even see my house!!!  What a wonderful idyllic little valley!!
Nothing like a fancy drink and a tram ride down!
The best part was that, after the hike, I had some inspiration left over and went for a bike ride on the new resort trails . . . hike a bike to the top of chair 4, techy downhill, and then a good dinner . . . not a bad way to spend a last day before going back to work!!!  This was definitely a great two weeks off!!!
