Thanks Craig. When are we going climbing? How is the new house?
That looks like neve to me. There was hardly any ice this year on the popular Sierra alpine couloirs.
I soloed the Dana Couloir at the end of October, and it was still mostly neve. There were a few streaks and patches of ice though.
What the heck though - from what Calvin told me, Jen had a grudge match with the Dana Couloir and it's good to see she got even :)
btw Calvin mentioned that he did Ice Nine this year in September - and there *was* ice in the final pitch. I think that one must be true water ice (melt/freeze). I wonder if Split East Couloir would have been doable this past November ...
Look, you guys are brave. I wasn't soloing this neve or not. Of course it was neve this year, with some small patches of ice.
No worries - Miguel is just being an analytical type and pointing out facts. I think you guys did good. Congrats !
Yes..us GIRLS did do good. Thanks Rob.
Oops, sorry, I meant 'guys' in the 'group of people' sense. Heheh :)
OK, I just had to give you a hard time. No worries.
