Thinking about doing the flying dutchman on longs on Sunday was just wondering if anyone has any bata on it. Thanks AaronPugmire

On Peak 11,300 in the Ruth
I don't think this will be super relevant but I climbed it about two weeks ago. Somewhat deep snow and the crux had a thin smearing of ice on it. Good luck! tsuji

I was up there with Tsuji the weekend of Feb 18th. The snow was knee to thigh deep most of the way up. However, I was up on Keiner's this past weekend and the place has been blasted by wind recently. North facing stuff is highly variable. Could be down to last year's snow (nice climbing) or nearly waist deep (not so nice climbing). A few sticks of ice through the crux but not much. It will keep getting better through the spring, though. There is a lot of somewhat reactive windslab in Lamb's Slide, but there is a nice slung block at the bottom of the snowfield above the loft (bring double ropes to do this rappel or be prepared to drill a v-thread because 1 60m deposits you on water ice).

Mr Ducomb and I did Lambslide to Kieners this past sunday. At certain points you will be wollowing - but only the most fun kind. Spots in Lambslide are down to the snow from last year which makes for stellar climbing. Spots have deep snow. Simulclimb broadway if you hope to finish before dark.

Oh and regarding your question in the other thread it took us 18 hours C2C.

How about a 70m? Will it reach?

you will have to down climb some easier ice. having double 60m very preferable .
