  • Lorna's Necklace - November 1, 2008 - left strand

    My description of this climb was submitted on November 14, 2008 in the 'Kananaskis' section. I have finally figured out how to post a picture on this site - see the more recent picture of Lorna's Necklace in fat conditions, taken on Feb 17/09 in the Images section. My son, Steve and I thought Lorna's Necklace might be a Class WI4 when we did the left side on November 1, 2008 because of its thin and delicate condition. Probably a WI3 in its present fat conditions. I would be very worried about the avalanche risk from the glacier above, except in good early season conditions (as we had). It took Steve and I about three and a half hours from the hut, with only some ice on the trail on November 1. I expect it would take significantly longer with the present snow conditions.
