Early season in the Canadian Rockies means sometimes it starts puking snow when you are five pitches up...

Don't think it's worth a separate thread, but we hit Valley View (5.9, 6 pitches) yesterday and despite great weather lately, it started snowing on the second pitch. If you are climbing in the Bow Valley this spring, expect variable weather.

Great climbing though... 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
