V Notch Conditions

by hamik » Sat Sep 19, 2009 10:16 pm

As of September 17, there is a snow bridge over the left side of the bergshrund. The couloir itself is fat with neve and two water ice patches, each of which is about a pitch long. Despite warm temperatures and a relatively late start at 8:30, we had only one naturally released rock whiz by, and the rope only dislodged one other.

I'm not sure if there's a bridge over the U Notch shrund, but it looked similar with half neve, half ice. It was smeared by a lot of rock debris, though, so it might be a little less stable than V Notch at the moment.
