Warm, wet, then dry November weather made it possible to make another go at the Great Slide of Grace. There was much less snow (more or less none at all), although recent cold nights resulted in a pretty thick buildup of ice on the lower part of the slide. We brought crampons and made short work of that section, then enjoyed a very warm, clear November day while scrambling up the excellent rock up to the top of the slide, and the crest of Grace's summit ridge. Lower stream levels and late-day warming meant that on the way back we were able to follow the entire herdpath properly; consult graphical trackmap in the image gallery. for our exact route. This is a very fun slide climb!
