Anyone been up that direction this year or have a thought as to the conditions on the Mt. Brown gullies?
Too early and way too warm. I've not been up there yet, but I'm certain it is too early.
Another few weeks then...kinda makes me sad
I was in Canmore climbing last Monday - Thursday, did Sinus Gulley in Stanley Headwall, R & D @ Ranger Creek and the Ross Lake Headwall, all have long approaches this time of year.
Left gulley has alot of water flowing,not much ice until up high. Middle gulley has ice, but not the normal. Seems like it has less water flow, but more ice than left gulley.
May be stating the obvious, but was up around the gullies today...not in...but did see some ice forming in other north facing areas, so that is a good sign
Went up to about 6,000 today, it was pretty good above 5,000 and OK from about 4,500 on up. Better than this time last year.
