Clyde Couloir to Starlight  Sucess!

*Awesome* ice climbing in the Clyde couloir! Bergschrund was trivial. A mix of snow and ice for a few hundred feet took us to the base of the crux pitch, which was fantastic water ice where the couloir pinches out. Snow on the upper half after the crux pitch. We followed the couloir all the way to the notch. From there, it's two easy <5.5 half pitches to the summit. Milk Bottle hard in boots... Felt harder than Thunderbolt in climbing shoes. Perfect weather, killer views! A fantastic route and definitely a day to remember for a long time. We didn't experience any rockfall.
