Great read! That line looks sick... like the straight up style (writing, and climbing)

You should see the place in spring-- ice crashing down all over the place ! We got whacked pretty good on the Captain Memorial Day.

The Chinos are a dying breed. JG is the LAST OF THE CHINOS!  Or Alpa chino as we like to call him.

I was a bit early to be a Vulgarian  and too old to be a Chinos (maybe an elder)  guess it was the bastard generation..I'm cool with that

Very cool. It is nice to see people who don't wimp out about a little approach. I have a hard time getting most of my friends to make a mellow sub hour hike in for new routing. I don't ice climb, but that looked like a great adventure.
