We got the shit epiced out of us on this route,but that would easily have been avoided if we had brought skis or snowshoes. FANTASTIC climbing, I had the time of my life on this route. We snuck in behind the crux curtain for a snack out of the wind, it was a cool cave.
great ice. The day started off clear but started snowing mid morning and steadily increased during the day. We reached the last vertical section at the top only to have the bowl above ave off on us. Not a lot of snow but certainly made one think. We bailed not knowing what was going on above us. I doubt I will ever forget the sound.
Third try. Don't want to talk about it. The approach was the hardest part for me. Had to do it just to say I did it but going back I think I'd rather do something on the wall north of the road instead.
