20-August-2005: right couloir - mixed snow and ice. During the afternoon the summer sun caused meltwater to run down the ice, which made it a little easier to climb, but hard to protect. We were expecting a snow climb, and wished we brought more screws (we brought mostly rock and snow pro). There were places for rock pro on the left side.

To picket or not to picket...

that is the question!



Just kidding, nice shot Rob. But did you find pickets helpful or should we leave them at home?

Re: To picket or not to picket...

Thanks Rob, I threw the pickets in the car just in case. I guess we'll just have to see.
