Kangaroo Temple/North Face

3JUL2016 successful trip. More snow than anticipated so ice axe and boots advised. Run out second pitch to corner before building second anchor. Don't use rappel anchor as communication is impossible.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Eight person team departed 0600. Some routefinding challenge. Much more snow than anticipated mostly in deposition zones and avi paths. Should have had ixe axes and boots. Mistakenly used rappel anchoe for second anchor and that made communication impossible. Build second anchoe at corner instead. Added webbing and shackle to airy rap station. My favorite basic climb. This was a mentored lead for me.

Eight person Team departed 0600 returned 2230. Long day. Route finding trouble up to pass. More snow than anticipated in chutes and deposition zones. Bring ice axe and boots. Build second anchor at corner and dont use the rap anchor. Communication is impossible from rap anchor.
