Rendezvous Mountain in Jackson Hole is where many skiers spend their weekends and its north face offered up two new ice routes this winter.

Rendezvous is composed of solid dolomite limestone, similar to Castle Mountain in the Canadian Rockies.

Americans Sam Macke, Nathan Brown, Jackson Marvell and Brian Mulvihill made the first ascent of the 110-metre State of Emergency M6+ WI4 and Village Ghost 5.10 WI5.

The routes were approached on skis from the top of the tram, as you can see in the video below. There are anchors to rappel.

There are have been reports of ice smears in the area but this is the first time new routes have been reported. Watch the first ascent of State of Emergency below.
