Joffre Shoulder West
Obsured skies and stable conditions meant it was time to check out something new!
We skinned up Joffre Shoulder from Joffre Lakes, gained the ridge in about

down Eastern Block Chutes, back up and down Joffre Shoulder West slide path.
Spring skinning, yeah
Good thing he has light boots!
Not a bad way to get to the top!
The skies were clearing so we decided to have a run down the Eastern Block bowl
Ended up at Eastern Block lake to look at the backside of Chief Pascall.
Warm temperatures today. Bring the globstopper!
Skinned up the western slope to check out our options. Hearstrings is across
Louie on the top section
