Climbed 210 meters of snow with periodic ice. Wallowing at its best. Temperatures stayed below -12 all day. The snow was largely unsupportive and penetration was to knees or deeper. Cross loaded soft wind slab formation had occurred or was occurring in the gully, although winds were very light during our day. No signs of instability noted although I would expect the slabs to continue to build this week with sun, warmer temps and wind.

Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny.
