February ice conditions
Updated: Nov 26, 2019
We'll start with the bad and finish up with the good.
Stone Hill - No ice. This one just isn't going to come in this year. Although if you're game for some dry tooling, two of the routes have a second dry tooling pitch bolted by Mark Venery a while back. Highly recommended!
Bad Rock - No ice.
Columbia Mt. Trailhead - In!
There are a handful of short routes to choose from. Setting anchors at the top may be tricky, I would bring a long piece of static rope, maybe some cams and stoppers, and get creative.
Crevice - Fun WI4 with some good rests.
Serenity Falls - I was surprised at how well Serenity came in this year! It has been my go to spot to take clients.
Brainstem Wall - Glacier National Park - Brainstem is looking quite stout as usual but there are a couple mellower options off to the sides. Be sure to check Avalanche Conditions before you go.
Be Safe out there and happy climbing!
