John Hollands encounters Moose

The routes in there are in excellent condition. Here is a picture of Christian on ‘Moonlight’ taken by Paul looking across from ‘Snowline’. Pity he’s wearing dark colours but when you make him out its a sensational shot!!

The top pitch of ‘Moonlight’ is sensational this year. Here you see John (Sealy) cruising the top curtain. He found two screws and QDs in situ. Later we saw on the Gadd website that a fellow had taken a whopper, fortunately uninjured, from the top pitch. He’s coming over from Calgary tomorrow, with a crate of beer, to retrieve them!

  1. Happy memories times two! I remember the walk in through deep powder, and not a sound to be heard. Superb place. Moonlight rings a bell, but I can’t remember exactlly what we did without checking the guidebook. Either way, it doesn’t matter. Any route in there is a joy. :mrgreen:

  2. Yes, a moving place to be. We’ve been in four times between us and only ever met two moose 😀

    You might remember that just right of ‘snowline’ was the very thin, run-out (R) line of ‘2 low 4 zero’. In the guide, it appears reasonably fat but for years now it’s been little more than a smear, with scant protection. However, during a recent warm period, about 2 weeks ago, it was generously bolted! I believe there are 14 bolts on the main pitch :star:
