December 14 Ice Climbing Report (Thanks Mark)

Highway 5 – Coquihalla

I (Mark) headed out to Box Canyon on Friday for a quick recce – had a play on the Yellow Flow and the bottom of Grim Reaper. Wet in sections, but generally nice, fat ice. It wasn’t that cold (~2°C at the car), but was still in decent nick (compared to everything else I saw from the car on the way up…).

Lots of ice around, but I did have to wallow a lot to get there… There’s 30-50 cm of snow on top of the alder and boulders, getting up to the back of the canyon would be a lot of work right now.
Didn’t head back as planned to today as it was raining at the trailhead…
