Hobbit Couloir
« on: March 01, 2014, 06:02:56 PM »
I was at the Hobbit today Saturday, March 1st and the top is thin compared to normal conditions in my opinion and while it is climbable I wouldn't call it in. Just thought that I would pass along this information.

Al...Discretion is the better part of valor.

Jacque...."the top" means not the bottom. If you need more details then may I suggest that you climb it.
Joking aside I meant the top 30 or 40 feet which is what I call the actual Hobbit. The gully leading up to it was fat. There was ice on the very top. It just looked thin, narrow and with an awkward shape.

Just kidding,

 I led it in less than perfect condition
