Trip Report

10 hardy souls from BCMC made the trek up to Sky Pilot valley, with really good snow conditions (no post holing!).

Drizzly on the way up, got to the Pink Slab and found the rock wet and slick. Climbing was sketchy with consequential exposure. Weather was windy, foggy and snowing occasionally. Group consensus was to turn round and head down.

We enjoyed some glissading and a beer on the patio during our debrief!

Main lesson learned was identifying group abilities and experience prior to the climb.
