july 25 2010 Paradise Glacier
« on: 07/26/10, 07:31 AM »

Paradise gl update.
Jeff S,Jeff H,Ken and myself carried up goldengate.Started skining not far beyond ,up past Mclure rock then to top of PAradise GL.
Ken and jeff went up to ski ANvil slope while jeff and i sunbathed and snoozed. Anvil slope rough and bumpy but Paradise was in excellent shape with minimal suncups and soft corn. We chose  skiers right  of midrocks Main crevasse below midrocks (8200 8400)  at the pitchbreak is now open from north to north edge of midrocks. Easily avoidable by our choice of route and a wary eye. Break over into cowlitz above midrocks is becoming crevassed. We skied out Ice caves route and staying west regained Golden gate. A short carry at top oof Golden gate then skied on continous snow to 200" short of Myrtle falls.Not a bad carry for some decent skiing.
