Looks like Earle Whipple has turned his attention to the BC Coast Mountains

https://www.kootenaymountaineeringclub.ca/mountain-info/guide-books/THE_NORTHERN_COASTAL_RANGES_OF_BRITISH_COLUMBIA.pdf

I see some pretty wildly inaccurate grades in here, but still, way more up to date than the 1965 Culbert guide

Just back from a lovely flight through the central coast.......


Any of yall visit the vicinity of Tezwa River on foot? Talk about rugged! I was also supremely blissed to see a grizzly for the first time from a fixed wing! Jeezus this is truly the land before time...

iirc that's Tsaydaychuz behind and right of Salient.

Salient west face is weird. There's a geologic contact across the bottom of the face so the lowest 1/4 is one rock type and the upper 3/4 of the face is another. One's granite and one's Gambier Group and I forget which is which. You can see that contact in your photos.

John Howe and partner went in to climb the west face when the roads were driveable and ended up climbing the north face instead. Knowing John, that means the rock quality on the lower west face probably leaves much to be desired?

According to my notes, the bottom is granite, and the top is Gambier Group


& John and Blake climbed the buttress just right of the ice gully on the north face.

It has been too long since this thread was where it belongs, so here's a photo bump to get it back on the front page.

Had some good views of the coast ranges on a flight last month from Seattle to Fairbanks. Used picture timestamps and Google Earth to try to try to figure out what was out there. Always wanted to see Waddington!
Tried to id the Devils Thumb, but not really sure.
A bit further north, just past Haines...

Goodbye Flavelle/Lane, Twisting Couloir, Smell the Roses, etc

Are you sure the Flavelle/Lane is gone? I thought it was on the rib immediately to the left of the avalanche path.

The bottom of that rib and the bottom of Central Couloir are both gone. I expect CC might still be climbable with a harder start as some of the mixed terrain at the left edge is still there.

There's also a brand new big crack in what's left of the Flavelle Lane so I think it will be the next chunk to drop. What I'm more interested in is if the next buttress left will go and extend the failure all the way over to Joffre Couloir or not.
