March 8, 2012 Ice Climbing Report (Thanks Francis)

Mt Cokely Road – Vancouver Island

Crystal Chandelier is still in.

Was able to scramble to knifeblade and column stance, then climb 60m pitch. Followed by a 40m pitch to top. First pitch was a little difficult to protect and find good placements in sections. Last pitch had lost of good ice. As of yesterday the climb is still in the shade all day and you can drive to last switchback to access.

Here are some pics:
