Ice dragons is in...Thin in some spots, but ice the entire climb. Bring a small alpine rack, and if u rappel the route-recommended-rap climbers left...have fun!!!
Is there a lot of snow? Looks like a fair bit from the pictures.
How those other routes to climbers right look? I know you have a picture to post for us:)
Climbed Ice Dragons last Wed (11/14). The route is in great shape, but the approach is annoying in current snow conditions. The two routes to the right appeared to have very little ice on the lower 3/4, but may still be climbable.
Has anyone been up here this year? Just wondering how the route and snow pack is doing. A long drive to recon it if its already been done!
I heard second hand from a couple different people that a party tried a couple weeks ago and basically spent all day post-holing. I went out in the West Rosebud up high - same same.
