Hiked up to the falls yesterday (11/6/11).
This is what ya got:
Got about 4-6 inches of snow on the trail at the bottom of the falls also.
looks like the season is coming to missoula. I'm assuming that there wasnt anything to climb quite yet. How were the temps up there?
It was below 32 all day, I reckon. Plus a good cold forecast.
Climbed in the upper ampitheather on Sunday, plenty of ice but very wet.
As of today, the falls look similiar to Hilar.e's photo. The quality of 80% of the ice was excellent, but there was a ton of snow on everything, as expected
Also if you are headed up the falls anytime soon, we had to leave a 16 in screw on the far right climb (whispering ice?). If you are feeling nice (or like beer), I would love to see it again.
