Gannet Conditions and crossing the 'schrund

by triyoda » Sat Jul 21, 2018 7:06 pm

Anyone been up to Gannet yet this year?
I am looking at heading out in maybe two weeks, but it will be a solo trip. I'm assuming at this point there is no snow bridge on the Gooseneck glacier and trying to figure out how viable is it for a solo climber to get across or around it.

Any suggestions appreciated

Elkhart Park: Snow-free all the way into Titcomb Basin. Snow will continue to expose talus and boulders on Bonney Pass going over onto the Dinwoody Glacier. No major crevasse danger on Dinwoody, except for moulins located sporadically along the edges (read, giant holes in the glacier). I was told in the last few days that the snowbridge over the Gooseneck Gully bergshrund would not last for much longer. If this is the case, you have two options: 1) climbing the rock to the right of the gully to circumnavigate the bergshrund or, 2) the heavily-crevassed Southwest Couloir.
