Heading up the 1st pitch on Whitemans WI6, Kananaskis Country, Canadian Rockies
Very mixed weather & conditions at the moment with snow, high winds loading slopes making it difficult to get around in the mountains at the moment.
Joker WI4 on the left & the 'Candle Stick Maker' WI5+ tucked into a deep gully on the right
The Ghost, Canadian Rockies
Heading up the initial easier pitches of 'Candle Stick Maker'
We ended up turning around & heading back out, without climbing Candle Stick Maker due to the very strong winds & very high avalanche conditions we saw releasing wind slab pockets in between the pitches & the steeper ground beneath the route
Great conditions getting in & out of the Ghost at the moment
Heading up to Lake Louise & the Icefields Parkway today to check out conditions up there.........
