In 2006 we kicked off the snow climbing season with Dragon's Tail Couloir so it seemed fitting to kick off the 2007 season with its neighbor - Dragon's Tooth Couloir. The big difference between 2007 and 2006 is we're starting a month earlier! The conditions in the couloir were near perfect and the weather turned out to be awesome too (even though it didn't look good in the beginning). We had a blast! Bring on the snow!
