5 out of 5 stars Tough out of the cave

Easy climbing below, but at 5-10 degrees overhanging, with sketchy traversing out of the cave, this was climbed as a passable grade 5

Second Second ascent by: rhyang on 2007-03-16 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Swapped leads

Climbed in two pitches with a 60m rope. I led the first pitch to about WI3. My partner Steve led the second pitch to about WI4+. The ice was good, though picked out on the pillar - lots of hooking :)

5 out of 5 stars Avi

Climbed with Heather, ice was awesome, but the snow was wet and heavy, just right for avalanches. at least 3 came down on us while we were climbing, the last one hit Heather and buried her to her knees. Not too serious, but a little freaky. Fun day in the end.

4 out of 5 stars Louise Falls

The conditions of the day would put this at hard 4 easy wi5, very picked out, diffently head to the right side of center for a more intresting/calending climb. The only way to climb this is in 2 pitchs, makes a nice short climb, we simulclimbed up to the main flow and set a belay above, makeing the cave area a quick rest area before finising the piller and above flow.
