Ron,
You got a better memory than I and I bet you remember who posted this picture of ice on Silver Peak (?) on Hwy. 4, I can't find it. Thanks

Thanks kennyt that's it. I never made it over the pass much this pass summer, we need to hook up later this year on the rocks up 4 . This year was more mountain biking for me. Let me know if you are in the Bear Valley area.

By the way, regarding Coldstream. Do you guys think the road to the tracks will be plowed at the moment?

No, I would access from Sugarbowl on skis.

It was 9F up here last night, 28F right now. Ice sucks, but it should be nice and cold. 82F in my house... heat hasn't been on since 5am.

Can't you access it through the tunnel to the saddle? It's been a few years...

That ridge above Coldstream holds some of the largest cornices I've ever seen. But, I was always up there in peak conditions for skiing, not climbing.

Won't be plowed by this weekend? Really!? :(

LOL that place is awesome.
I heard of people creating artificial mixed lines up on Donner with a hose. That sounds great.

I'd say that someone should get out this season when conditions are right and climb the Donner Nordwand, but that'd be light. The Donner Nordwand is for skiing, not climbing.

There is always ice on the north side of Castle Peak...
