Climbed with SMG. LOOOOONG Day with plenty of talus and difficult routefinding to and from the climb - make sure you understand and know all the complexities of this area. The climb itself was 40 - 45 degrees, with great rock pro, mostly firm snow and a little ice, melted out the last 300 feet. Still plenty of snow this year.
My wayward slow ass took "forever" to reach the base of the couloir and I nearly called off the climb at noon, somehow I couldn't deal with clambering back over the boulder field with tail tucked, so I climbed the damn thing. Most interesting and exhausting trip up with a little bit of everything - postholing, frozen snow, transitioning ice, bulletproof ice, mixed climbing and finale of dry rock. Was I jazzed to see the summit!!...and my truck 13 hours after I left it. :/
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
