Jicarilla Peak (12494') is an unranked
peak at the north end of the Truchas group. Despite its
unranked status, it is an impressive looking mountain from the north
with several appealing lines for ski descents. Due to horrible
snow conditions and nightmarish bushwhacking, we were only able to
make it to approximately 12000' on Jicarilla's north ridge before tackling a
sticky, slushy ski descent of its north chute. Click

north chute. Don't let his smile fool you.
