Fun climb. A little thin at times, as we hit rocks here and there. Top pitch was enjoyable. Good moderate route...
Despite the weather forecast for a cold day, we were pleasantly surprised to find the day quite warm as soon as the sun hit. The ice was a bit thin in spots but overall in great shape. Final pitch was quite enjoyable and sustained for its grade. Climbed using two 70m ropes and combined pitches 2 & 3. Rapped down in 3 as well.
We climbed this route in really bad conditions with all rotted ice both on first pitch and last one, but we still enjoyed a nice day out.
Always nice to come up to Canukcistan
Climbed this route first. Dane leading the lower pitch, while I led the last pitch. We chose the line farther to the right and it ended up being good WI4. Good conditions. We rapped off and then headed up Left Hand side of Lower Weeping Wall. We found our selves rapping/hiking out in the dark again.
The name describes this route well. What AJones called sun-rotted, I called a 1 cm layer of ice over powder snow. No pro, and wiggy moves up the crux pitch. The ice on the climbers left up top is stunning.
Climbed it in terrible conditions - there was a layer of sun-rotted ice all the way up the crux pitch. Still enjoyed myself though.
Fun climb. Fun upper pitch on steeper "pillar" just right of standard 3rd pitch ice.
first time leading and I got to do 'em all! fun but thin in sections at the time...had to use beaks!not sure if a novice should have been doing that
