December 20 Ice Climbing Report (Thanks Peter)

Highway 99 North – Marble Canyon

Todd Anthony and I (Peter Watson) climbed Icy BC today (Dec 20). First pitch is in lean shape low down, but easy shape up high. Second pitch is a weird toilet bowl with flowing water in the middle, but dry ice on the right. Top pitch is different than ever before, but ice on right side gives way to the top at WI5.

Best news is, Marble Canyon is fat with ice. Deeping Wall and Deeping Wall Direct are big.
No Deductible is huge, although the bottom could use another week to keep filling in. Be careful if TR’ing.
Body Shop is in.
First Tier Direct is in and huge
Air Care is forming well
NO ice really to speak of on the left side of the crag for the DT routes.
