lineham right

Blair and I hiked into Lineham on Saturday to try the ice. The trail didn't quite have enough snow to ski. Luckily the end of the valley didn't end up being as full of spindrift as usual, making the approach quite easy. Unfortunately the bottom of the left climb was melted out. The base pillar was in, but the slabby rock above made climbing it more than questionable.

The right route also didn't look overly fun. We ended up hiking out and hitting Trap Line. The approach wasn't too bad, despite being out of shape and climbing much higher than needed. The top of the climb can be spotted by two pieces of purple webbing around a tree near the lip.

The climb wasn't too bad. A nice Grade 3. It would be fine to lead, but you should rap down instead of trying to come up the bottom. There are a number of uniced ledges down lower. We didn't climb the left hand route.

On the way out, Blair gave up trying to hop across on the boulders and just waded in.

Absolutely nothing is in on the south side of Crandell. Unfortunately, I doubt much more has formed up this week when compared to last.
