Vertigo soul

...mostly neve, but fun none the less! I can see why this route is so popular...easy approach, beautiful area and easy enough climbing to make it fun but still challenging. Loved it!

Great ice climb! The ice was more brittle along the moat than it was out on the face. Started the first belay in a moat to the side of the couloir & led 3 pitches to the top.

Swapped leads with Chris Gibson on a beautiful early fall day. There were 3.5 pitches of good ice in the couloir. Just a bit of a bergschrund on the lower left side, but nothing to worry about yet. We soloed up to a patch of ice and pitched it out from there. I led pitches 1 and 3. The route seemed to be well-traveled.

Also climbed this one in 2004, 2005, and 2006.

Climbed with Forjan. This was my first Alpine Ice lead. We soloed the first pitch of neve and completed the climb in a total of 3-60 meter pitches. The route was in shape and a great first ice lead. We caught the 2:15 water taxi for a relaxing finish to a great day. Did it in about 10 hours wtih help from the boat.

This was my first multi-pitch ice climb and it was a good calf burner.

Great route with neve and ice climbing combined. Rock pro existed for small cams. A classic route!

Climbed right couloir with Peter Doucette. Shrund was easily negotiated on the left and was the only pitch requiring tools. Firm neve. Unfortunately no ice this season.

Great climb, reasonable ice. Lots of rockfall though--staying right definitely helped. Got caught in a storm halfway up.

Had an awesome time on my first ice climb. I think I shared the route with Kovarpa, who blew by my slow beginner self. Climbed the couloir but didn't summit due to time, so hopefully I'll come back for that eventually.

My second couloir. Climbed with Miguel and Joan. One leader, two side-by-side followers. I lead the 1st and 3rd pitch switching leads with Miguel. Climbed the last 1/2 pitch in about 3 minutes after sitting at belay for 90 minutes, because I just could not wait to get to the sun.

BTW...I dropped my right glove off the top of the 3rd, and it slid into the moat halfway up P2 on the left. If someone *happens* to grab it, PM me. Thanks!
