Very cold day, fun route Date Climbed: Feb 3, 2014
Cold day, with deteriorating weather called for an easy climb where we could keep on the move. John and I decided on Rogan's Gully (a climb neither of us had been to before) since the temperate hovered around -22C most of the day, with lots of high wind, so the easy grade and longish length seemed like a good choice for the day.
Great option for such a cold blustery day, great fun!
I soloed this route while David and Christina spent the day skiing at Lake Louise. I caught up to a guided party on the last pitch and waited while they rappelled past. The last pitch was straightforward and I found the crux to be a bit lower, squeezing past a rock wall on the left. The walk-off right was quick and easy. The whole thing took about 2.5 hours.
