3-4-2011 Y-Not

Andy had work this AM, that meant a 4:30 wake up and 5:30 start, again.  I just wanted to rest today but how could I say no? First hour was by headlamp, before we knew it the sun was up and we were in the Y-not.  The top was great.
Andy moving pretty quick
Snow stayed nice throughout, a little variable but not too bad.

We thought the anchors were in a weird spot preceded with what looked like a patch of ice. A rather large tree seemed like a better option.
After the short overhanging rap the chute gets narrow.  It was a little hard to keep speed in check but a combo snowplowing and straightlining got us through the tight spots.

Chris pointing it, a bit steeper then it looks.
