Report from September 12, 2022
Yesterday, we finally went for the crown jewel line in our mini spring project – The Patagonia Chutes & Corn Project.
We’re calling this line ‘T Daddy’.
It’s big, it’s long, it’s steep, and it’s spicy.
This was chute #3 in our current 6-chute project.
Because I wasn’t fully sure it goes in the middle (it’s steep & rocky in there right now).
I decided to boot straight up it – which turned out to be spicy itself.
There were glide cracks, rocks, 50º bulges.
It was a bit mentally fatiguing because the chute was just damn steep from start to finish.
The middle and upper sections especially.
The top section skied like a perfect corn dream.
The middle was steep, rocky, and spicy.
The bottom was an avalanche debris battle.
Overall, this was one of the coolest chutes I’ve skied anywhere on Earth.
