Skinned, Cascade volcanic cross, dogged pluck, furtively, bomber ice screw, fickle moonlight, cushy basecamp, espying...and so on--very descriptive terminology. 10/10 on the terminology alone, let alone the climbing prowess you guys exhibited. Well done.
Nice work. You can really be proud of putting that all together. It makes me want to do more backcountry exploring for sure. You should read Primo Levi's short story "Bear Meat" since you had a nice big meal of it yourselves. Great job!
