Had a seemingly rare view of the Refuge streams and ponds frozen over during this hike. We weren't quite as light on our feet due to the temperatures, but we able to summit Crab Eyes without too much trouble. You do have to get a little creative towards the top if you're going to make it all the way up.
I watched from the bottom as my partners, Bryan and Curtis, easily made the summit of Crab Eyes. It was along the slanted rock in this image that I decided I couldn't quite make it. Fifty feet to go and the exposure got to me. --mark d.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
