Nice shot Andrew !

Looks like Miguel's new G14's got their maiden voyage.



But, who did he borrow the tools from ?? (just kidding Miguel :)

Actually Rob, those are his old G-12's and he was complaining about them the whole time. He said it was the last time for a full day of ice in G-12's...and the tools WERE borrowed (ha ha)...

Re: Nice shot Andrew !

At that spot I was at a belay anchor that consisted of 2 ice screws (a long one 22cm I believe and a shorter one) that were equalized by a 3/4 in sewn nylon runner. This neve was hard enough to hold very well.

Excellent - what a difference a couple weeks of melt / freeze cycles can make !

Yeah, I am not sure if the timing could have been any better...it really seemed to be in.
