Classic  Sucess!

Great classic ice climb. Climbed it twice (the second time in 2013) and both times it definitely felt more like WI4 with a sustained section of ice requiring multiple ice screw placements without foot stances. Both times the ice was thick and protection solid. Walked off climber's left, no problem.

Quick and Dirty  Sucess!

Climbed to the summit of Crandell with no shirt. Not too bad for January!

agreed....  Sucess!

with the page owner that this is more of a WI 4 than WI 3+ as listed in Joe's book. Perhaps if you take a line further right it might be grade 3. We ran up left, nice and steep, sustained, placing screws without rest, more like 4. The 2nd pitch was quite undulating like grade 3. We used Quick and Dirty as a warm up for Le Pilier des Putains, a WI 6 in the book that felt more like WI 5 to us. Good times with Jayson, our 6 day "pump fest" in 2008! Doubt if I repeat that feat again.

Quick and Clean  Sucess!

Combined this with French Kiss with a couple from Hinton. Great day out. The first pitch is stiff for grade 3 and is very enjoyable. Got drenched by a water release lasting about 5 minutes on the first pitch. Oh why do we ice climb?
