Lost in Translation 180m WI5-
James Blench, Marco Delesalle, and myself climbed a new route directly accross
the valley (South)from the ice funnel in the ghost. (It's on Brents photos)
The valley is spectacular.
We parked at the 2nd river crossing. It looks a little sporty still. 2hrs to
base. Start on rightmost flow in the cirque, scrambling up to the base.
P1) 50m WI 4/4+ Cool mushrooms to rock belay out left (pin and nut in place)
Traverse left 30m on easy but exposed 3rd class ledge to first major iceflow
that is touching down.
P2) 60m WI 5- Brittle ice and mushroomy features lead to large ledge (ice
P3) 70m of grade 2
the route took good screws. We used a few pins at the belays.
Ps . If anyone finds a Cobra with an android mount on the way to Amadeus,
mine fell off my pack on Teusday. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and a 6 pack is yours (no trick emails)
