Black Dike done Feb 8th

1st pitch very thin, no screws, just used random iced jamed slings
2nd pitch No ice, pure rock climbing and using for pro: the traverse slings, another rock sling above, a red camalot jammed, and an old tricam also jammed, to finally put 2 small screws near the end. I wish we brought rock pro !
3rd pitch Good Ice, Good screws, the curtain is dry, only goes on the left and steps are more vertical than usual.

Enjoy ;D

I know it is a longshot, but with this mini-cold spell... anybody get a look in to the Dike yesterday or today?
