January 17, 2011 add’l info (Thanks BJ)

Highway 99 South – Duffey Lake Road

I (BJ Cassell) saw that Cherry Ice was in, but thin on the 15th, but that was before the warm temperatures caught up with Lillooet and farther east. Lillooet had ran overnight, but Marble Canyon was just below freezing this morning. Lots of running water on top and/or underneath most climbs in Lillooet area (Rambles, Icy BC, Deeping Wall, etc).
The Tube looked like it was still in as of the 16th (as seen from the road).
On the 16th, Rambles Left, upper tier sounded kind of hollow. Rambles Left and Center were climbed all the way up on the 16th. I can’t even convey how much water was running. Aside from the wetness and associated conditions, overall, the ice seemed to be holding on for the most part.
Obviously stuff between Cache Creek and Hope weren’t worth writing home about.
