Lineham Falls

Brett and i skied into Lineham today. The chinook that blew threw this week has left the ice on the left side in excellent condition. Well worth the 2 1/2 trip in. The ice on the right is really poor and had been poor all winter. Juste Nous Deux is in but thin, of course it's always thin and the shining is alright but the sun has been hitting it pretty hard.

We climbed the Left Gulley on Sunday. The ice has taken a genrous beating from the sun, but it's still hanging around. At many points down low it's quite mushy, but the amphitheatre up top is in much better shape and actually had some reasonably sturdy ice. All in All it was a fun day....

I must have seen you from the road on the upper pitches Aimee. I thought it may have been Blair. I have a feeling Crypt would have been ideal with the warm weather and no wind.
