Devil's Slide to North Bowl

"Carson Peak was the capstone of an epic week of backcountry skiing in the Sierra, and this mountain had it all. It started with a 1900' vert climb up Devil's Slide, a classic 35-degree walled chute. Here Adrian departed and Phil and I continued up a steep skin around a shelf to the North Bowl, a mini-Tuckermans-like cirque. The snow changed to powder wind-slab and the skinning grew difficult as the pitch steepened. Finally, after a slow 1600' vert we topped out on the ridge for a short level walk to the summit with views of June Mountain, San Joaquin Mountain, Ritter, and the Minarets.
