Down towards Atlin

Went to check out some of the easier to access ice down towards Atlin after breaking trail to the climbs across the lake past Carcross the previous day. Early morning fog over the lake and some ice to boulder on at road side. Short 20m grade 2 ish at the White Mtn. trailhead had plastic ice even though the AM temps were in the minus teens whereas Whitehorse was around zero. A fair amount of driving for not a lot of ice, nice views though.

Some road side ice to play on - until the pillar cracked, then I set up a rope. Apparently in some years this will fill right in and be 30m wide, this spot is the cover shot of the now outdated ice guide.
