JZickler Posted November 14, 2013 Share Posted November 14, 2013 (edited) Trip: Beartooths - Funeral For a Friend Date: 11/10/2013 Trip Report: Sunday the 10th Ben Boldt and I enjoyed early season ice on the Beartooth mega-classic Funeral For a Friend. We spent Saturday cragg’n on flows lower in the canyon and punched through the drifted snow on the road to the Glacier Lake TH. On the hike in Sunday morning we encountered typical Fall continental snow conditions – bare ground in spots and 4 foot drifts in others for the first mile and consistent shin to nut post-holing through sugar snow from the bridge to Glacier Lake. We found the route to be in fantastic condition. All the major flows were in fat (in comparison to other reports I’ve seen) and the perfect golden granite made for great moderate mixed climbing. When we made it back to our vehicle that evening we discovered it had been burglarized and the thieves cleaned us out of nearly 15k of gear! Below is the short list of high $ items that were taken. If any of you Montana guys out there come across back-woods drug addicts selling climbing doohickeys that they have no business possessing let me know!
