Great Ice -- June Lake

Postby Randonnee » Wed Jan 24, 2007 7:42 am

Sorry no photos :( at this time. I was up on Horsetail Falls at June Lake this weekend with the axes and crampons. The cold streak really hardened the ice and the falls are in shape for climbing.

The tempatures were mild and comfortable for climbing. There were tons of blue ice. Several groups of climbers were at the site but spread out enough that we were not tripping over one another.

I did not get over there, but I heard that Lee Vinning Canyon is also in great shape.

For you Ice Junkies -- get out there, it doesn't get any better than it is right now :D

Edited to correct the name of Horsetail Falls
