Odell Nov 29

The ice on Odell gully was decent. Two long pitches of ice, very hard and brittle ice. A couple of thin and hollow areas, but mostly pretty good

as I remember from your FB post, above P2 was all waist deep snow. looks like rapping from the top of P2 on v-threads would be a good plan.

Rapping is possible, but it's more fun to top out :)

After the head wall, the ice flattened out and then it was all deep snow. I didn't find a good place to anchor (with screws) so I went to the boulder little higher up and built a gear anchor there.
