Hiked up to the base of Pilsner this morning. Debris from previous slides ran through the trees and had 10cm of new snow on top. The debris nearest the climb appeared to be more recent with only 3cm of snow on top. I can’t comment on the climbing but it seemed challenging to get good gear and we went to Guinness instead. No evident of recent slides on Guinness. The day was generally overcast with occasional blue sky patches poking through. No new snow overnight, no snow through the day. Winds were calm, although we did observe blowing now at ridge top near Castle Junction on the way home. Temperatures felt quite warm, I don’t have exactly numbers.
