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...

I saw some pictures of the Lake yesterday and the ice still looked good. interestingly enough there was minimal ice on the ground and the lake itself was frozen enough that there were people out there on ATV's! seems to me that the lake waster of ice only a couple of weeks ago...

The ice on Friday was good. 

Ground was 99% snow free - today I bet it was 99.9% snow free. 

There was a lot of ice in the approach gully and obviously along the base. 

I have only ever seen it with snow on the ground - it was quite a different scene snow-free.  Micro-spikes saved the real crampons from some serious abuse on the way up and down.

surprisingly good. I saw a picture of Glass Menagerie and it looked OK. I'm sure that there is plenty to climb. depending on this next front passing through that is!
