  • Anyone been up Kidd Falls?

    Just looking at heading out there tomorrow. The avvy conditions look pretty tame, but Kidd usually seems to be more loaded than most gullies. Has anyone had a look at it in the last couple days? How is the ice? How does that bowl above it look? Thanks!

    Lots of snow up there today, as seen from road. Things were sloughing all over the place on sunny aspects where I was.

              first I have to say I never climb Kidd falls before so I have no idea how ideal conditions there looks like ...

              so I will say no , considering season just starting and saturday was around +4C up there my hands and pants was dry :-)

              half way in "cave" mid way up on the overhang are hanging pretty sharp looking icicles and those was falling down here and there ...

              what else to say ? hm some spots ice was maybe two inch thick and I seen water running under ....

              I dont wanna say hey guys go up there ice is perfect ! for sure another couple weeks of cold nights will do much better , but like I sad before I feel save to lead and we have amazing day up there is is for sure one of the nicest climbs what I did here in Alberta ...

              some more pics
