Thanks! It can get pretty windy there, but it's usually a lot worse above the Gates. Unfortunately, the Hogsback shifted over in 2007 and the Pearly Gates are now a much more technical climb and often require a second tool and ice screws.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
