Here’s a sweet edit sent over by Jacob Mandell, from this past weekend’s adventure up the Mt. Baker Highway. Below are a few notes Jacob sent over in regards to trip.

This past Sunday, November 10th, Andrew Eckels, Louie Dawson, and Jacob Mandell set out sunday with a big objective in mind, the most western couloir on the South face of the Pleiades. This seldom skied couloir had been on the minds of all three riders for a few years now because of its aesthetic nature. With big ambitions the crew set out to check out the line with early season conditions. At first glance the line seemed boney, but as we climbed the couloir a few steep rock cruxes were navigated and after a long climb we had reached the top. We were than welcomed with a sweet ripper decent on stable snow. A fantastic day in the mountains!
