Snowline

I got up at 4am to pick up Domhnall, and we headed out to the Kaninaskis area for another day of ice climbing. Our destination was the Evan Thompson Creek area where we would decide on the climb once we arrived. There was one other vehicle in the parking lot when we got there. The lead was part ways up Moonbeam, so we set up to climb Snowline which is the line on the right.








It was thin at the bottom, and it was quite a while before Domhnall could place any protection. I felt uncomfortable at the bottom with all the ice falling from the other group. The second pitch was a cold shower, and at the top we were rewarded with a great view.



We quickly got down and headed to do Chantilly Falls. We were here earlier in the season, but it wasn't quite formed at that time. This time it was nice and fat. Domhnall climbed it in one pitch, only placing one ice screw. The ice was great but we were on a schedule so we got up and down as quickly as we could. Another spectacular day.
