  • Bearspirit in in.

    Maybe its a good thing it was -24C and early season. Our CSMC group of 9 had Bearspirit to ourselves. There was a bootpack all the way so obviously there have been climbers but on Saturday no one else came by. The ice steps are in. The main column was somewhat wet and mushroomy but solid. The ice is not solid enough for good pro but it climbed well on toprope from a tree anchor. The grade three ice on the right and the window waterfall beside it are challenging enough for those who want less of a workout. Again best climbed on toprope rather than leading. Interesting to see less snow on the ground in Banff compared to Calgary.
