I've spent a lot of time climbing on this route, though I've never finished the entire 5 pitches. I've climbed the first pitch many times, including a couple of solo laps. I've climbed the second pitch three times (once in a blinding storm), but only recently led it for the first time. I've only followed the third and fourth pitches, and we've just never had the gas or the guts to do pitch 5. Maybe someday.
With Zach and Jason. Three days, three WI 5 routes and 1 mixed. Unimpressed with the amount of ice and snow formed in this canyon for January. But the area got a dump as we left. Surprised how low (elevation) it sits. Many routes not in. Good stuff though for a boy so far away from his local ice stomping grounds. Better than Joe's Valley last December anyhow. Definitely got to time the ice right in Utah. Global warming?
"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."
