Kandersteg Ice conditions today

Plenty of new snow overnight and chucking it down all day..........but so far, the ice routes up on the Oeshinenwald, (the classic wall, easily accessible above Kandersteg) haven't formed at all this year, it's just been too warm.

I've posted a few shots here of some of the classic routes I saw today, which obviously are a long way off being formed!





From no snow to loads of snow! - Kandersteg today

Great conditions on Tutto Relativo yesterday in Cogne - Steve leading the first pitch

Graham with a team in front leading the second steeper pitch

We opted not to wait and climbed the left side of the lower section of the pillar and belayed behind it! The second pitch was an exciting step around back onto the pillar and up!

Steve pulling over onto easier ground at the top of the steep pillar - on Tutto Relativo, Valeille, Cogne.

Steve leading the last pitch on Tutto Relativo, Valeille, Cogne

Cogne is obviously the place to be at the moment!

Stay safe
