Great picture! Now this is what I am talking about, a little more vert, a little more rock, and is that a snow bolt...?

In the upper-right corner? Yes, it's a snow bolt. I've had to crop it out, because the patent hasn't been filed yet.

Thanks! This pitch was the highlight of the day. The ice wasn't great, but Brian placed good pro and did a bold lead.

Thanks! I'm glad you like it. It's a fairly short ice pitch, but it adds spice to the route. The position does the rest.

It's an inside joke. Dan is a sport climber who never misses a chance to extol the virtues of bolts. So, we came up with the idea that snow bolts would make alpine routes appealing to him.
