Topic - Eilde Canyon 27th March

Simon Yearsley - on 27 Mar 2013
Went to look at Eilde Canyon today and it's in great condition. Did the left-hand mini icefall next to ‘El Mini’ – ‘El Micro’, 8m III. Repeated ‘Hongos’ (excellent line and nice and fat). Backed off the leftmost line on Chandelier Wall – a bit hollow at the top, but the line to the right looks in good nick. Soloed one of the easier angled ice lines opposite Chandalier Wall (‘Raton Rapido’ II). Did ‘Left Hand Amigo’ (V,6), three stars and imposing launching onto the superb steeeeeep top wall. Other lines looked great and well-formed, e.g. Jumble, Andale Andale!, Zapatista and Primero Pool etc . With the weather set to continue cold, should stay in nick for a few more days at least. Not updated the topo from today, and of course someone else may have done the new lines we did today earlier this season. Copy of existing topo here at http://www.bigtreecampervans.com/eilde-canyon . Enjoy!
