-5 at the parking lot at 6:30am Very supportive snow pack throughout the day with 5cm of fresh snow overtop. No cornice above Bow Falls itself, although there is one that could partially threaten the approach slopes if you stray too far lookers right. WI4 with a thick eggshell layer on anything that is not vertical. Cornice collapse over what’s remaining of Gorby’s Falls. No other climbs are in full condition other than More Human Than Human (WI4 R) which we felt was a bit too bold for our blood today. With some trad gear and a few stubbies this could be a fun outing right now. Afternoon heat definitely warming everything up, even with cloud cover all day. 1 degree back at car around 3:30pm.

Weather conditions were: Cloudy, Warm.
