Canadian Rockies Update: Soloed the three Goodsirs the last three days (25th-27th). The new snow had turned to verglass on some west facing aspects, but not enough to make much difference (when the rock is this bad, every move is suspect to begin with). I used a unique approach to summit all three peaks in 50hrs, biving just below the furthest east SW ridge of south Tower, leaving my pack on this ridge, picking it up on descent and moving the bivy across the true sw ridge down to below the middle Goodsir. Hate to break it to you avid 11er peak baggers, but this will be your worst bushwhacking experience yet to come. Budget cuts to the parks has even left the trail to the unused warden cabin littered with dead fall. Heavy rains and wind have caused even more dead-fall than normal from the warden cabin to the peaks. Beta from Corbett's book and another 1991 source about staying between the marsh and alders is irrelevant. A new flagged approach will be detailed in my summitpost beta report later today. Worst rock (South Tower) and approach I have experienced in the Canadian Rockies in the past decade.A good angled photo from the South Tower showing the amount of snow vs scree on the infamous "V" on North Tower as of Aug 26.
