Steve Mueller and I climbed Goode Mountain in July.
This was my 52nd park point (National Park Highpoint) of 58 NPs.
Our guide Paul Butler was GREAT and made the climb FUN.
Paul was grateful that I brought along photos by Charlie Winger.
Paul had previously climbed the NE Buttress and wasn't familiar with SW Couloir, which Charlie had climbed a year before.
It was a late spring, so there was snow in the couloir, and we set tents on snow fields which were talus for Charlie in 2009.
Note the photo of us on the ledge. I am in the red helmet. Our boots are 5,000' above the creek. Quite the exposure.
