David_Parker Posted June 12, 2001 Share Posted June 12, 2001 Mt. Constance is in good shape right now if you are looking for some big vertical and safe, easy, but fun climbing. I soloed it on Saturday from the trailhead. Not as much snow at the lake as I expected but enough in Avalanche Canyon to move quickly up to the north chute. (The south chute has no snow!) Conditions were perfect hard neve! I took my crampons off once over on the east side and the terrible traverse was straight forward. This route offers great steep snow climbing mixed with fun 3rd/4th class rock scrambling. Getting off the summit block was the only tenuous moment. There were no other climbers on the mountain this particular day! Descend the normal route, it's great scree skiing! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
