Climbed Carlsberg Column with Peter and Steve. Peter did all the leading, and we did the route in two pitches. A bolted belay was on the right about halfway up, and there was a tree on top (double 60m's reached the ground no problem).
Temps had been warm the previous day, and the whole area seemed soggy. Soft-shell gear utterly soaked. The "ice" was a slushfest, but Peter led it like a champ. We guessed it was about WI4+/WI5- in those conditions.
Climbed with Peter Valchev and Rob Yang. Water was pouring down the route. Good day to wear Gore-Tex. The climbing was easy, if not a bit pumpy. Pro seemed a kinda iffy. Glad Peter was leading. The rap off was indeed memorable.
