Alden did all the leading. I thought the 1st two pitches were pretty darn serious and P 2 had the potentual to zipper the entire pitch if one was to test the gear.... Everything looked pretty serious to me.  Even the tablets  are probobly in grade 5 or harder conditions...

Alden headding into some very steep and spicy climbing.... The gear on this pitch would probobly get an A6 rateing in the Fischer towers.....

I was hopeing we would at least keep some snowpack to help keep the water flowing if it gets cold for real but no such luck...
