Ice climbing Murchison Falls

Jonathan Urness

A beautiful day with moderate temperature and approx 10cm of fresh snow. Murchison Falls is fat and formed well. You still may wish to bring the shell jacket esp for pitch 2 as the far left (climbers left) has an open gusher which is being transported liberally all over the place 😳☔. Snow stability in the approach slopes is a moot point at this point still. Approx 15cm total depth with the exception of some wind transported pockets. Trail is in good condition with only a few windfall logs to navigate. All easy stuff.
