Moonlight & Snowline in Kananaskis Country

Touched down in Canada yesterday & hanging out at a friends house in Calgary last night & today.

Snowy weather today, high winds & an avalanche forcast of 'Considerable' above the tree line...........so we decided to head into Kananaskis Country about 90km W/SW of Calgary to climb Moonlight & Snowline. Great routes, with an easy 1hr approach alongside a beautiful river creek, with the ice plastered onto the sides of a steep canyon wall.

Dean leading the 1st pitch of Moonlight WI4 - Snowline is the ice line just right of Moonlight - some great ice on both routes today
 
Dean leading an upper pitch on Moonlight today, Kananaskis Country, Canadian Rockies
 
Low avalanche risk & an easy approach make this a great venue in mixed conditions.
 
Dean enjoying some great climbing on the upper pitches of Moonlight today
 
Me enjoying the belay & climbing on Snowline today
 
 
Heading back into Kananaskis tomorrow as the avalanche hazard in still 'considerable' & we need to let things settle a little.
 
Cold though, minus 12 in Calgary today!
 
Safe climbing
