February 10, 2012 Ice Climbing Report (Thanks Peter)

Highway 99 South – North Joffre Creek

Today (Feb 9) we ski-toured into Swiss Wall (2 hour approach) and climbed Fromage Suisse (WI 4+). Sn-ice and holes, but with good ice for pro, is how to describe it. Some loose snow avalanches over this climb and Schniedelwurz during our climb.

Other routes that looked good on this wall were, Miss Neurons, Gee Whiz and Spank Me (judging upper pitches as seen from a distance). Other routes and top pitches to routes look snowy and not much fun!
