March 24-26, Spearhead Traverse

Better late than never!

March 24-26 we did the Spearhead Traverse. Conditions were great. Sunny all three days with rain coming down only as we ate our burgers at the Brewhouse. Snow was variable. Bulletproof in spots, boot top pow in other. Temps seemed to be between -10'c and 0'c.

Night 1 we camped on the Ripsaw, night 2 in the hut.

Highlight for me was the ski descent off of Fissile. We did the NW face.
