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.

  • Weeping Wall Dec 16, 2018

    4 parties on WW today climbing all 3 lines on the lower section. Guys on the centre reported aerated ice out of the cave with delicate climbing. Lots of mushrooms. We climbed LHS & spent a fair bit of time cleaning the latest snowfall off the route. Thin delicate climbing had us a rope length away from topping out when we 'pulled the pin'. First day on ice had taken it's toll.

    Tried to add a photo but could not to get the pic orientated properly....look on FB for the pic.

    We drove by on December 19 - lots of fresh snow on the route and heavy snowfall the night of December 20. Expect to clean a lot of snow if you are there in the next few days. Thought the lower wall looked a bit thin relative to previous years at this time.

      that was also the case when I was there. My gloves were soaked & the climbing was slow.
