GSI shutting down

It is with regret that Gravsports Ice will be closing soon. Despite all of us here and many in the community being of the opinion that GSI is a better archiving system for information on ice climbing in the Canadian Rockies, this website will be shutting down.

Keeping the lights on and keeping conditions current no longer seems practical. We have tried making the forums more user friendly, and kept access to a vast array of beta and history contained on the website open to all. However low participation and increasing costs from both the website and hacker intrusions have lead us to this decision. Many thanks to Ian for past hosting costs. While the website will remain live for a short while you can expect it to disappear soon. We have talked of options to preserve the beta it contains however we offer no guarantees at this time.

We thank all our supporters, and everyone in the community for your past participation in GSI.
Will, Ian, and Grant.

  • Urs Hole - Cascade Mountain

    Oct 31. The cold weather had me optimistic that Urs Hole would be climbable. Was in decent shape up to the pocket glacier. The right line was too thin for us to try and didn't get eyes on the left. All pitches before good to go but step carefully around the thin sections. The short steep step by the chockstone was tough to protect. Gotta be a least a WI2+.
