Just about to go climb one of those 2 gullies on monday and I was wondering what condition will we meet out there.

A lot of snow fell up in here in Quebec so I guess it's gonna be a little pain in the *** to get to the top?!?!

Thanks for updates guys :D

Oh well I guess I will adjust my rack and add a kayak for this one :)

How can this thing spit that much water!?!?! :confused:

Flash freeeze for the win :)

We attempted to climb Central/Green Chasm yesterday - it appeared to be all snow & water so we bailed and moved over to Landslide. It was better - very wet but still lots of ice. I think we left two 13cm BD screws at the top of the ice pitches - somebody should get em before they disappear into the rocks!

Thanks for the infos!!

With luck we will find your screws :(

With a little help of cold weather this could be very interesting!!

soloed shoestring yesterday. Ice was nice, all rock at the bottom of the right hand exit. Trail down treacherous

Was on Shoestring last week. Ice was good but thinner than I had expected after all the rain/freeze but still a good climb. As Gee mentioned the trail down was awful.
