Took the line of most resistance, on the right side of the gully. Felt more IV than III! Excellent way to end the day!

Lots of ice. Stayed to the right and climbed up through a nearly formed ice tube : ) A good finish to a beautiful day.

Heavy snow conditions. Avalanche at top. One steep bit, good route though!

Mike & I went to do Quartzvein Scoop, but there was a huge cornice hanging above it (as there was for most of the routes on the left half of the crag). We ended up on Sunshine Gully, as it had the smallest cornice and looked like it had a line traversing up & around it to the left (which it did). Was quite a tough day on what would normally be a straight forward grade 3, because of the conditions (artcic winds and lots of spindrift). There was perfect ice, but unfortunately it was plastered with 6 inches of powder! In terms of routes on the crag today I think we made an ok choice, as we saw other parties on other routes having to abseil off because they couldn't negotiate the cornice, although a mixed route would have made for more pleasant climbing. It was all getting a bit avalanche prone in the afternoon and we had to manage the top section of the gully very carefully and ended up doing a bit of swimming to top out! Crazy for mid-March... felt like the beginning of the season!

Steady climb but on very brittle ice, took the steeper right hand line on first pitch, a bit leanish perhaps but nice climbing.

Witnessed a climber injured by falling ice, large facial gash, blood on the ice. His partner abbed them both off, and we gave first aid. We lead on, and retrieved their gear. Finished up left hand gully.

Misha 20/Feb/10 AltLd O/S

Brief visit on the way to Roy Bridge. The line shown in the guide book was partially snowed under and didn't look very interesting so we did a variation on the right at about the same grade (or is it an 'official' separate route?). Paul led an ice pitch to a rock belay and I did a short pitch with a couple of exposed mixed moves to get onto an easy snow slope from the belay ledge.
