Climbed Spray River Falls, good travel up the drainage on avalanche debris releasing from south/south-east facing rock on previous days. Strong melt-freeze cycle created planar ice and interesting conditions (thin brittle skin on some areas). Sun only affected the drainage and climb for a short time in the morning and had firmed up again by the time we descended (around 3:30pm).

Weather conditions were: Sunny, Warm.

Avalache Conditions: Rapid temperature rise to near zero degrees or wet surface snow.
