1 pitch went at an easy 4 or so. 2nd was easy to mid 4. Horrible conditions on the pitch and a scary lead as the top third was really no ice. Third pitch was a brilliant 4 lead. Crux was a brilliant WI5 lead. Lead the upper flow in one pitch with some simul climbing. Classic!
Loved it, soloed that big final pitches
Climbed this one with Bill Ayers and Dale Remsberg to cap off a week of climbing in the South Fork. The first pitch was super long and fun WI4- climbing. The third was steep, brittle, and cauliflowered and went at about WI4+. The crux pitch was a steep pillar and full-value WI5. We finished up the upper slabs and then rapped and hiked down the way we came. Took exactly 8 hours car-to-car.
