Climbing Conditions

Climbed Curtain Call with Mountain Guide Matt Reynolds and Jasper Parks Public Safety Specialist Jesse Milner. As previously reported on social media, the easier left side of the first pitch is pouring water. The right side sports a well protected roof pull at half height that had Jesse joking about sport climbing at the gym. The second pitch starts steep but quickly backs off. Good screws and ice throughout, and a very thick pillar, make for enjoyable climbing with no worries about the stability of the formation.

We rappelled from the bolts at the top of the mixed route to climbers left (10m left at the top-out, on an obvious boulder), which required a swing to return to our mid-way anchor.

Overall, a much more confidence inspiring trip up an awesome chunk of ice than can be had sometimes.

-20 at 9 at the car this morning. Perhaps 10-15 cms on the ground above the climb.
