Despite the weather forecast for a cold day, we were pleasantly surprised to find the day quite warm as soon as the sun hit. The ice was a bit thin in spots but overall in great shape. Final pitch was quite enjoyable and sustained for its grade. Climbed using two 70m ropes and combined pitches 2 & 3. Rapped down in 3 as well.
Lots of climbing this day Date Climbed: Feb 16, 2008
Climbed this route first. Dane leading the lower pitch, while I led the last pitch. We chose the line farther to the right and it ended up being good WI4. Good conditions. We rapped off and then headed up Left Hand side of Lower Weeping Wall. We found our selves rapping/hiking out in the dark again.
The name describes this route well. What AJones called sun-rotted, I called a 1 cm layer of ice over powder snow. No pro, and wiggy moves up the crux pitch. The ice on the climbers left up top is stunning.
