January 4, 2010 Revised (Thanks Peter, Henrik, Marc-Andre and Don)

Highway 99 North – Marble Canyon
Per Matt’s post on Jan 1, the film crews and ice hardmen were out at Marble over the weekend. There are some shots of the climbing and filming on this Flickr photostream — linked pic is John Furneaux leading Fender Bender.
The third pitch of Icy BC looks to be in great shape.

Highway 99 South – Duffey Lake Road
Climbed Synchronicity yesterday (Jan 4). Was wet overall with a layer of 10-20cm of snow over all bulges. Made for a lot of clearing for good sticks. Even top pitch in the forest is in.
Ice bridge across river made for the easiest approach yet.

Highway 40 – Bridge River
