Observation: Douglas Island

Location: Cropley Chute

Route & General Observations

Toured & booted up one of the fingers to the lookers left of Cropley Chute. The southern aspect of Cropley Chute had considerable windloading and is suspect to becoming a potential problem if it doesn’t break down after the next storm cycle. The northern aspect has been sun affected due to reflection off the opposing slope creating a thick layer of ice on the northern aspect. Similar wind and sun affected conditions are probable on other mountains nearby.
