Re: Oh yeah !

We attempted this route in Feb. 03 my partner lead the first pitch as you see here, bringing me to lead the second. The second pitch is a free hanging curtin that looked fully climbable. I swung for my first tool placement that fractured the curtin almost killing me. Lesson learned? Ice climbing near Las Vegas is probably not to smart.

Be Careful

The Hose Monster is unpredictable, even for the experienced. http://www.sarinfo.bc.ca/Library/Rescues/MtCharleston.CA
