Trip: Hyalite -

 

Date: 11/28/2010

 

Trip Report:

A large Bellingham crew spent last week in Hyalite Canyon for Thanksgiving. Amoung us was Dyan, Kevin, Dustin, Brandon, Austin, Brian, and meself.

 

We stayed at the TLC inn, which has the best bargin going! You can pack as many people as you can into one room and thr rate is still 50$ for two beds.

 

Everything is looking fat in the canyon and one of the guys from Northern Lights (the gear shop in town) said they are plowing the road year-round now. WOOO-HOOOO

 

Day one Looked like this:

 

After driving until 3:30 am we were a little unmotivated to walk and spent the day on top rope at G1 to get back into ice mode. Dustin, Kevin, and myself all soloed lower green sleeves that day too.

We all decided to head to the unnamed all that morning and took over the craig! We got on the elevator shaft, the fat one, and magically delicious

We decided to split up this day. Austin, Dyan, Brian, and myself went to the corner climbs and lower green sleeves. Brian led his first pitch of ice and I got another solo lap in. The rest of the crowd headed to upper green sleeves and G2

Day 5:

We all drive home and Brandon and I stopped in Vantage and got on the first 30ft of Arctic Grail (see other TR)

 

 

Gear Notes:

Lots of screws. Placed 13s, 16s, 19s, and 22s.

 

Approach Notes:

Get on I90 and go east. Get off in Bozeman. The road into the canyon is getting plowed year around
