YATSUGATAKE: IT’S STARTING

right now ICE CANDY looks like this..

but if you look at the peaks behind it’s more interesting. up in the gullies the ice is forming, the trickles are freezing and tho its a lean start its climbable. yesterday we got in some laps of drytooling and about 75m of very delicate ice in one of the more esoteric gullies, right as the sky cleared with the first big northern cold plunge.
