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.

    Parking - the full pull off hasn't been ploughed but there's room to pull a vehicle in each end.

    Approach - Well beaten herd trail is good.

    We had a group of five and another group of three arrived later. No problem running three ropes although there was a mix of wet or chandeliered lines to avoid. Pro was good although the ice was hard first thing. Easier as it warmed up. In between the left and middle flows there was a nice low angle line that my partner got to do his first ice lead. Nice to have some sunny periods in the afternoon.
