Great pics, glad you had a fun day. You may have gotten the first dual leashless Ergo ascent of the Huntington Ravine trail...  ;)

Haha, indeed ! My friend didn't have any tools, so I borrowed these for him. It worked out !

Was up there yesterday...damn did that approach suck, and the tucks trail was covered by about 3" of snow when we came down it hiding the ice so we opted for the crampons as the snow was balling up on the micro spikes rendering them useless. I can't tell you how much fun that boney trail is with crampons! Lion Head was a real treat too!  lol my knees and ankles may never recover, but the climbing was fun. Full on conditions up there by 3PM on the Garden and snows pounded is right down to the parking lot!

The current storm's snow should help with the approach and descent--let's hope it continues and gives us some REAL depth!! About 6" on the rail of my deck in Bartlett at the moment and it's snowing hard with tiny flakes--Bring It, Mother Nature!!
