Ice - King Creek

Grant P

**Magic Touch is in and being climbed although pretty thin if you want to go to the lefthand anchors. **Main Flow is somewhat narrow but fairly well formed on its righthand side. The steeper start took 16cm screws and also pissible to place 16s higher up although half a,rack of 13s or 10s will help. Lefthand side is easier but thinner and wetter. Quite a bit of old shattered ice at the base but while I had fractures with tool swings, I had very little ice falling. **Left Cave Flow saw an ascent but very thin and no screws placed on the steeper part. Open water at the base. **Gully Flow was not bulked out yet but was being climbed. The seldom climbed upper ice looked to have barely touched down and currently probably too thin to climb. ** The avi gullies you cross on the approach had very little snow in the south facing ones and slightly more in the north facing gullies. Some signs of pinwheeling in one south facing gully.

Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm, Windy.
