Thread of Ice on Twin Needles

Here is the link to my TR of the First Ascent of Thread of Ice on Twin Needles in Southern Pickets (North Cascades, WA). The 1200ft Thread of Ice is the central couloir. Photo by John Roper, July 1984.

Re: e

The "Thread of Gneiss" is the lefthand sweeping buttress, yet unclimbed although attempted and found "not worth dying for"...

The "Thread of Ice" couloir, on the other hand, was lots of fun! (A First Ascent by my partner and I in June 2009)

No attempts thus far on the right-hand wall...
