Climbed in the canyon this past weekend. The Bard-Harrington and Main Walls were getting afternoon sun, so it's probably a good plan to start and be done early (maybe bring skis).
No horizontal cracks in the Bard yet .. the storms this week will probably help keep it in shape.
We climbed the left side yesterday, and a party did the fat route up the center about the same time as us. A guide told me Photoshop
was in good shape too.
Justin starting up first pitch
Me on second pitch
Sunday was overcast and we got snowed on towards the top. That was kinda fun
Main Wall - seemed to get lots of traffic
Looked like Caveman
was in !
Me leading Left Flow
(WI4-), a dude was rope soloing next door
Chouinard Falls - quite the scene, looked like the climbing gym on Tuesday night !
Great to run into all the usual suspects
In other news, I hear Doug Nidever is recovering well -- he went x/c skiing recently, and he may be out climbing ice again soon !
