Black Prince hanging valley / Warspite


Snowshoe’d up to the hanging valley at the base of Warspite then put a steep track all the way up to the ridge on climbers left of Warspite. HS varies between 40-60cm on W and N aspects between 2200-2600m. Loose unconsolidated snow with no base. Noticed numerous loose dries to size 2 on steep unskiable Rocky terrain especially when sun came out. Zero wind effect nor slab properties where we were. Needs more snow before it’s skiable - unless you don’t mind hitting subsurface mines (rocks).

Snow conditions were: Powder.
