Highway 99 North – Marble Canyon
Sunday (Feb 28) we headed to Deeping Wall and Icy BC. Deeping Wall was thinner than anticipated, but Icy BC was fairly fat and some stuff over on the left was not so bad either. Eventually stuff started falling on us, naturally, so we bounced shortly after. It continued to warm as we packed up and debriefed at the car and from about 11am until we left the ice was super wet and more and more water was coming dripping down.

Will be back up there this weekend with a group I had promised to take out — so there will be 5 people on the only climb in Marble Canyon this Sat and Sun (March 6-7).

Highway 99 South – Duffey Lake Road
Saturday morning (Feb 27) up to Rambles Left . That ice was in iffy shape, definitely on its way out but not too bad – Saturday didn’t get much above freezing. It was a bit aerated, but sticky and good to teach on. Headed over to Rambles Center and the ice was in much better shape as it was shaded by trees more and was more vertical.
