3 out of 5 stars theres still ice!

A quick run up, 2nd pitch was fun, middle of pitch was picked out so you could do a little more climbing with finesse.

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Although I don't usually climb below another party, the bowls on the first two pitches made it possible to follow our friends as a second party. On the final pitch they had taken the right side so I lead up the left. It was steeper and W4+ or harder. I got totally pumped and had to clip into a screw near the top of the vertical section to de-pump and avoid the risk of falling. Not an easy decision but I believe it was needed.
