J - Coire Dubh Integrale

We are experiencing a very warm chinook that most people are rejoicing in as it is about +15 at the moment when it should really be -10. Unfortunately it is melting all of the harder ice routes and even the moderate ones are pretty soft at the moment.

It was my birthday and with some friends over for some pecan pie we decided to go and do a more alpine style route instead of the short hard ice climbs we have been doing recently. It turned out to be a lot of fun.

You can see our route in the top left photo, up the ice and then up and right towards the low point in the skyline. This post is for those people who tell me to put in more photos.

Other than this our week consisted mostly of work and waiting in line at checkout counters.

Looks like you were very fortunate with the weather! I'm curious how long it took you, car-2-car, and did you descend back down the route or walk down the ridge?
