Climbing is dangerous! Every year many climbers are broken, maimed, and killed. Don't be so foolish as to trust your life to what you see here. I'm not a guide and neither is this web site. If you don't know what you are doing or where you are going, please take a course or hire a guide!

Hyalite Canyon Ice

November 30-December 2, 2002

I was sitting in my office staring at the weather forecast for the next week. Sunny and warm, again. Jens and I had plans for an early-season trip to Lillooet, but it looked like there'd be nothing but wet rock and very fluid waterfalls. Then I had an idea. A quick look at Mapquest supported my idea, and plans were changed. A third and a fourth were found, and at 9:10 AM on November 29, we leave my house, bound for Bozeman, Montana.

<the rest of the TR is coming, but for now here are some pictures>

Friday, November 29:

Drive from Issaquah to Bozeman. 10.5 hours, 675 miles.
