After my quick and thorough butt-whooping on Hunter, I’m back in Canmore, Alberta assessing the snow and route conditions that I faced and evaluating what I could have done differently. In the mean time, I will be here doing some writing, nordic skiing, and day climbs to keep on top of things so that I am ready for what comes next. With much of the winter still ahead of us, Pascale and I are currently pondering a couple climbing projects.For now I'm putting the Hunter under the microscope…not quite done with that mountain
