The heat-breaking record subsides and the temperature under the shade returns to normal, warm summer. The freezing level is reduced to about 15,000 minutes, and if combined with bright nights, it causes the surface snow to freeze again every night. This disrupts the trail, stabilizes some snow and ice, and allows climbers to access the summit regularly. A small system moving on Tuesday evening should lower the ice level even further and help lock the ice and snow in the mountain for a while.
|The Yellow Trail is currently the busiest, with the exception of the final lane, where climbers follow the Green Trail to the right of the climbers. Orange is the busiest route from the top of the corridor.|
The Emmons / Winthrop path is still climbable. The path specified in the previous update remains the standard bus with some minor tweaks. The first is the climber’s left traverse below the 11,400 gap at the top of the aisle. After the climbers climb a small snow field, then turn right back to the climbers to get the route. The second supplement is the correction of the climbers’ ascent area in the final burial. This takes climbers to a wide ramp that accesses the last part of the peak.
As our seasonal snow melts and glaciers continue down the mountain, the course continues to change. These changes may occur while you are on the road. This becomes problematic when the path you have taken is no longer suitable for descending. To prepare for this, make sure you have plenty of gas in the tank to solve the problem down the road. This may mean that you have to spin a little from the top to have the energy to get out of the impasse. Another strategy is to break a difficult cycle and stick to it. Regardless of your strategy, remember to stay together as a team and be critical of options when climbing.
Come up and enjoy the calm and quiet side of the mountain!
