Intermediate Alpine Climb - Chair Peak/Northeast Buttress (winter)

Turned around.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles

Chair peak attempt . We started 6am from TH and were at base of climb 8:50 we had two parties ahead of us so we had to wait for our turn ,unfortunately second party was so slow . Climbed two pitches couldn’t use any protections . Forecast was 25-27 but turnout likely 35/36 snow was wet slog. Parties above us were triggering avalanches and continuous snow balls . We witnessed numerous avalanches under repel gully.At noon we decided to turn around some downclimb and made tree reppel anchor two 60m ropes and we made it to base . Perhaps it was great day outside in mountains .
