Trench "Narrow Nasty" Couloir, Black Mountain
After Greg and I's run down Shit for Brains we were hooked on this zone. I had heard of the other lines down the west face of Black Mountain like dogleg, dog shit, ect.. but never had I heard of the Trench. Greg found an old pic of the couloir from somewhere online and we knew we had to get it.
Time goes by and eventually after a bailed run on Brains one day, Mike Bannister and I get in touch and I got off work early and I met him and Pollo up in the basin to go for a crack at the Trench. None of us had done the line before but we all had a pretty good idea how to get to it. So we skinned to the head of marjorie bowl as far as we could until we switched to a bootpack and started to up the gully to the left to gain the ridge.
