View Full Version : Shoestring 1/16

Ran up Shoestring Wednesday, seems like it took some punishment from the rain, enough ice to climb though a bit thin and hollow in spots. Approach and climbing between ice steps was nice consolidated snow. Took the rock finish so didn't get a good look at the direct ice finish, would guess that it is similar to the rest of the gully, there but thin.

What did you bring for rock gear?

Was solo, but looked like it would be protectable with a light alpine rack - set of nuts, tricams (personal preference in winter), and/or smaller cams to a #1 BD?

I am wondering what the current, 1/31/2013, snow and ice conditions are on Shoestring.

I am looking at 700 miles to do this route. I'd like to be able to solo it, so I nee the conditions to be reasonable at the very least.
