I love it when you get these shots Radek...you did not happen to give Fist or Flips a shot did you? we had it on our agenda....just got too cold...looks like a fantastic crack...just up from where your tripod is here

Re: damn...

thanks Dow! Great write up on this page - right on IMHO (crux p2, easy p3). Short but very fun route we thought this one :)
We did see the crack you mention but did not have the multiples of hand sizes the book suggests to give it a go - sure does look pretty that splitter! Cheers!

Re: damn...

we did carry all that gear up there...I was going to have to lead it and was 50-50 about doing it with my hands stuck in my pockets with handwarmers....oh I hated leaving it undone....but have become soft no doubt, don't when I will ever be back up there there

Re: damn...

climbing in cold weather kinda sucks but climbing cracks in cold weather kinda sucks the big one! just my humble opinion...nothing like not being able to retract/place a cam due to numb fingers.
