It is thought by some (albeit a small group of diehard Teton ski mountaineers) that Reed Finlay and I skied the Becky Couloir on the Grand Teton in April of 1999. However, this is not true and really…sounds like something for some other gringo skier. A guidebook author’s notes read:
If anyone has any information on who might have made this bold, impressive and rarely considered descent, please comment in the comments section, or contact me directly. Thanks…Steve. (FWIW, my guess is that the 60m rap was the last one. )
