- A section of the trail has been destroyed by a blowdown. It's just on the far side of the first creek crossing. The trail is pretty much gone here now, and climbing over/through fallen trees is required.
- The long summer has melted all the usual gulleys down in the basin. The regular couloirs are now waterfalls. Much of the rest of the rock is covered with patches of verglas.
We got to about 1000m before having to turn around due to time & safety.
