Skagway & White Pass Ice

Postby Yukon_IceCK » Thu Jan 07, 2016 12:38 pm

Amplitheater and Spicy Meatballs are in. I do not know if the ice is in above the incinerator at this time. Further up White Pass, Monkey Tears was in. The approach up the gully was filled with packed snow, so no crazy bouldering at this time. Monkey Tears ice was oniony on the wider pitch, and the pillar had some grey ice on top. Off Windy Arm, Soliel and Solar Flare are beautiful. There were avalanches triggered at the rock bases of both climbs. So be careful on the approach, use the trees not the gully.
