Ice on Whitehorse
« on: April 10, 2013, 03:11:46 PM »

If the weather is warm this weekend I would like to get out on the slabs, does anyone know if the ice has melted or fallen to climb safely.

As of today, there is still some snow visible at the very top. Depending on your definition of "to climb safely" (which may mean climbing wet sections this time of year), I'd go for it.

I'm going to post some pictures in the Report this afternoon. there is still ice up there in many places. I would stay off the slabs & over to Lost Souls. the South Buttress and Humphrey's looks good to go. YMMV!

look at the pics in this week's Report. I was coming back from town this afternoon and noticed that it's still up there, as of Friday afternoon in the rain!
