Dry!

That upper couloir is a lot drier than I would have expected with such a heavy snow year. Surprising!!

Re: Dry!

we were surprised too. still exciting climbing though. of the nine pitches (including summit pitch) six and a half were all ice with only minor amounts of moderate mixed climbing here and there.
