Coire Dubh Integrale

On Friday Seb and I climbed Coire Dubh Integrale. It ascends a gully on Goat Mountain, at the edge of the Rockies. In fact you start among the prairie grasses. The route climbs through short steps of waterfall ice, snow slopes, and a couple interesting rock sections. The wind was ridiculous as we descended the ridge - knocking us off our feet.

Fun rock climbing in Crampons and gloves on the first rock band.

Reedonkulus wind on the ridge.

Almost down to the highway with sun setting in the Bow Valley.
