-8 when we left the car at 9am There was no trail to the base of the climb which resulted in a good wallow until we were able to surmount the avy debris. The snow pack is very faceted except for where the facets have overlying slab. The ice climbed well for the first 1/2 and then the quality deteriorated from there to the top. Eggshell, snice and just enough good ice to keep me interested in climbing higher. 55 meters and felt WI4. Flurries started around 12pm, winds picked up and small amounts of spin drift started to come over the climb. -2 when we returned to the car at 1pm
