Tuesday 2nd Feb. The Works
2nd February 2010
(Above) The Post Face – the right hand side of the big bowl (looking up) at the top of Centre Post is carrying a lot of new slab at the moment and is probably best avoided for the time being.
(Above) Raeburn’s Gully showing Smith’s and Ritchie’s – climbers in Smith’s
(Above) Pinnacle Buttress. I think someone did the ’59 Face Route last week
(Above) Easy Gully with the bottom end of South Post, Last Post and Missed the Post – the last two have had a lot of ascents recently. The bottom of Last Post is about 30m across and thick.
(Above) North Post and Staghorn Gully – both have been popular.
(Above) The Pipes, with the direct start
(Above) Pumpkin – busy
(Above) The Sash, the Wand and Diadem – no reports on ice condition/quality.
(Above) Cinderella with gnarly large cornice. Fresh avalanche debris at the base
(Above) Scouring of the top North and NE aspects. Much stronger winds today with loading on S to E, and scouring shown in the photo. Suspect slab on lower N and NE aspects – ledges and gullies mainly.
