    Did you skin up, trailhead to Lake ? We had to switch to snow shoes as the trail was too narrow for our skis.

  11. Hi I rapped down into a crevasse on the Coleman Glacier, day before yesterday and encountered near impenetrable ice. Do let me know your opinion on : Does the density of ice vary in crevasses on the Coleman Glacier? ( A glaciologist I spoke with said it does, but there is no pattern. The deeper the crevasse, the denser the ice, lower down because of flow pressure, but there are many other factors...etc Do monopoints work better on bulletproof crevasse ice? (I was wearing brand new Grivel G12's and they were barely making a dent!) I haven't found any answers on crevasse ice density despite scouring the web and asking amongst my ice climbing friends. Many thanks !
