Another Classic Rockies Ice Climb! Date Climbed: Feb 24, 2014
Nice short approach. We started off the first pitch cold, but as soon as that sun hit us we were nice and toasty. Use caution on the last pitch as the ice can be thin in the flat spots. I broke through in one spot and was up to my knee in water. Would be nice to link this climb up with another climb in the area.
This is another classic climb in the Columbia Icefield area. The bottom two pitches and the easy approach make it a worthy objecive or an easier day or intro to someone starting out. The upper pitch is cool once, but we have never been inclined to repeat it.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
