Ze big Three

Time for some Chugach.
Going to attempt to traverse the peaks in the header photo of this blog over the next 3+ days, Flute, Organ and Polar Bear. Yes there is a reason that photo is up there!

First up Flute:
I tried it last year via the Couloir on the Flute Glacier side which was fine, but got turned around at the top rock pitch solo. So this time should be better with ropes and gear.

On to Organ:
The west face of Organ is a stunning alpine wall, but rounding the corner on the Organ glacier shows a somewhat more straight foreword route via the glacier ramp just left of center in this photo...

And lastly Polar Bear:

vamos a ver.. time to pack!
