A little Something To Get The Blood Pumping

Passed by this little sweet heart the other day, too bad she,s melted into oblivion already.

I looked at this in July when i hiked past it and wondered then if it ran enough in the fall and winter to freeze up.

Where was this one Chris? Has it been climbing by Hoogstraten already?

I'm sure that if Hoogstraten had climbed it it would be in the books by now. This climb is up on Crowsnest and it forms every october for a week or two and then falls down. I have been watching for about five years now and I have never seen it reform after the first chinook. Maybe if I'm lucky enough to get out for a hike this weekend I'll check it out. The climb definetly forms out of snowmelt and drys up once it gets cold.

In 1990 it froze to the ground for a short period of time. We gave it a go but found it was still pretty much unprotectable so backed off of it. We intended to go back with a drill but it did not last - so it still awaits an ascent as far as I know.

Had a good chance this weekend to check all the little frozen drips in the Pass this weekend and they have all sublimated into oblivion. Great weekend for mountain biking though. If anyone is interested in downhill mountain biking info for the CNP area let me know and I'll pass on some trail reports.
