Went to mission falls today, the upper and lower falls sections are in and fat. great climbing.
AWESOME! ...now if only that hike wasn't such a beast!
yea, it was a haul for sure, not enough snow to kick steps, so we just slid around on wet rocks. The road is still passable for now though, not sure if it stays open through the winter.
i've not had any troubles driving back there in my subie, but who knows. i'm goin to get some of those rubber crampon things when i head out there next. i fell on my ass like 15 times.
it's simple really. lots of things have dribbled into place. whispering ice is connected. (it was fatter last year...)
people have been whacking away on the upper tiers, there's some great hooking practice, some thin lines that go. hike up and around to access more 50' pillars. there's quite a few obscure classics, it's just montana. classic- to do once in awhile because of the 'conditions' and approach.
