Lyle_Knight Posted December 24, 2001 Share Posted December 24, 2001 Climbed in Marble yesterday, had the whole place to myself 'til 3 Kamloops climbers showed up and offered a rope. It was -4C during the day, around -10C at night for the past week. Here's an update: Marble:Dale's Route (far left - mixed): Probably fatter than last year, looks like a small cam might go in the roof? There are 3 other smears forming to the left of Dale's that may go. The Dihedral (an oxymoron): This pillar is a bit hacked up but in good shape. Waite for Spring: Divided into two lines right now. The left line is leadable, a slung icicle near the bottom, then a few stubbies to get you there. The right line is a TR smearfest, getting into better ice on the upper half. Deeping Wall: Very thin and tough to get onto as the first few moves have been bashed away, but is still possible in thin ice for axes (none for feet). The steep part above is very thin, not really any chandeliers or cauliflower yet, just thin picks (nothing for gear). Actually looks really hard and fun! No Deductible: Forming left from normal position, and already thicker than last year. The bolts will be iced over soon. I'm guessing it's going to touch down this year. Icy BC: A bit hacked out but forming nicely (v. wet). Is realitively fat to the top (all three pitches). The Rest: The climbs associated with the third pitch all look to be in good shape! Fraser River: Draft Dodger and French Foreign Lesion trying to form but getting washed out by the afternoon sun. Cherry Ice: Looks pretty good from the other side of the Fraser (ie. it's coming in); Honeyman Falls: Needs about a week of cold weather (it was -10C in town last night), and clear the a.m.). It's pretty well formed from top to bottom, with a few spewing holes. It'll get fatnow. <---Ray crashing the Lillooet Fireman/ Policeman Xmas party <---the locals checkin' Ray out as he tries to steal their women <---Ray shortly after Merry Christmas!L Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
