I headed up to Yellow Mule in the Gallatin Canyon on Tues. in hopes of a quick and easy solo and to check out a new area. Unfortunately, Yellow Mule is not in condition. The first step was climbable but thin and brittle. The thin pillar on the left of the second step was nothing more than a few icicles so I skirted around right and back left to have a look at the final step which had ice only about 1/2 of the way down, so I headed home. At least the view of the canyon was nice!
