Russell Peak East Face

The east face of Russell is technical and can be tight depending upon snow conditions.  It is east facing, which means it gets sun early, and it also involves much steeper lines. The longest descents are from the peak, but they are very committing. Once you are up there, there is no backing out and escape routes are hard to come by should something slide.
