Today we wandered up the Asulkan valley and toured up towards Castor peak. It being a very sunny day it was hard to not go for a summit. The present avalanche conditions are variable with hidden dangers lurking. It feels and looks good but many random avalanches have been triggered lately and the alarms are sounding. ‘

None the less we picked on of our staple safe summits and went for it. A cold (-17’c), sunny day, with very little wind greeted us and we enjoyed a beautiful tour up. Being a videographer I sat back and filmed some decent footage of the boys climbing the ridge to the summit and then followed their bootpack.

 We then followed this summit with some fantastic cold powder turns down the glacier.

    so you know someone is still watching even though there is no new video. The thrill is in the doing!
