Mount Temple, East Ridge
Climbed the East Ridge today with Conrad Janzen in great conditions. Had to cross a couple of snow patches on the traverse to the black towers. There were only a couple of places to fill water (and not very quickly!). The pitches in the black towers are mainly dry. The summit ridge was good footing today, but is best done with steel crampons. There is some uncertainty as to where the cornice line is currently, which will force climbers to go onto steeper, icy terrain. Only 2 noticeable crevasses were encountered, and both were easily crossed on frozen snow.
