Highway 99 South – Duffey Lake Road
On Sunday (Dec 15) Paul, Extreme Polly, Aggy and Joe climbed the Rambles. We woke up to sunny skies and 13°C; warm like summer. We went to Rambles. The approach was easy and not slippery. We went to Rambles Left. First pitch was really bare and thin, marginally climbable. Second pitch was a bit better. Gully wasn’t formed yet and so we didn’t go up to the top tier. Photos below in the Picture Gallery.
On the same day (Sunday, Dec 15) Andreas, Jean Marc, Mark, Richard and I (Henrik) went to check out the ice on the Sea-to-Sky corridor. With the warm temps, Entropy did not look appealing enough to bother walking in. As a last resort we drove to the Rambles in hopes of salvaging the day. We climbed Rambles Centre. The first pitch had lots of flowing water, but we managed to get up to the next tier. GoreTex was essential to stay dry. Second pitch had some seepage, but was okay. The third tier had a mix of drier and wetter lines, but was climbable for the most part. Temps were slightly above freezing with sprinkles of rain throughout the day.

I (Mourad) rapped down and climbed the waterfall below Glacier Chair on Blackcomb a few days ago. Still some running water, but good fun. See the picture below in the Picture Gallery.
