Yeah Ranger Creek has a lot of hang fire above the climbs and with the storm that rolled in starting yesterday I wouldn't want to be out!

This recent cold snap did produce some ice, even as low as x38. Unfortunately most of it isn't well formed and will probably be gone in a few days.


I managed to get up the NW Buttress on Chair this morning. The snow conditions were very good, the ice not so much but better than nothing. Some routes around source lake are also coming in, including Source Lake Line, still they probably won't last. There was a lot of melting and ice falling down when I left around 1 pm. The temp back at the car was still 29 degrees and it's supposed to be fairly cold tonight so conditions could be okay tomorrow. I would recommend going early. By the time I got to the steep, albeit very short ice step it had started melting and a few chunks of ice were coming down as well.


Here's a pic showing the NW Buttress of Chair. Go get it before it melts!

Here in the Yukon ice has been in for a couple of weeks. The left is Funga Phobia and the right is Allens Pillar. Picture taken yesterday.


Not sure how to embed the photo in the post.
