Well done. Looks like awesome ice, I love the color.
Thanks Dan. That was as steep as we have seen the third pitch of Shades and we have climbed this route likely 5-6 times each. The ice seems to always form up big and blue.
It is an amazing line, and although the guide labels it easy for the grade, I have always found it to be a solid grade 4.
I love how the picture captures all of the background ice...it just seems to go on and on.
