Winter turns 4k peaks to hard climbs!
Thanks. Yes, winter definitely creates some interesting options for all tastes! Love it.
Saw this over on NE Ice as well. I was up in the Dacks a few weeks ago, awesome that there are still first ascents to be discovered up there.
I love the backcountry and it's a long way to carry 45-50 lbs. of gear to put up a 2-300 foot line. IMO very well worth it, but that's just me. I love exploring/climbing in the solitude an area like that offers. I added another thread on something similar in Panther Gorge that we put up Saturday...it's here if you're interested: http://www.summitpost.org/ice-climbing-in-panther-gorge-a-new-route-called-pi-day/932872
Thanks for the comment, much appreciated!
