Fat Ice and Crafty Ravens

Carlsberg Column

Climbing Conditions

Climbed Carlsberg today with Lisa Paulson. The climb has fattened up significantly since my last time on it two weeks ago and is in good shape. When I was there a couple weeks ago we had our packs torn apart by some crafty ravens. We hid our packs well today, but there was evidence they were still in the area and got into some other climbers stuff. I haven't worried about this in Field before, but it seems like a few crafty ravens may have moved to town, so something to consider if you are climbing in the area.

Busy day down in Field with multiple parties on Guiness and Carlsberg. A few cms of new snow in the AM, but it was picking up through the day.
