I’ve climbed a lot of hard ice pitches with Brian. He’s a beast. He came north again from Pittsburgh and brought his buddy Vince. These two throuroughbreds arrived with their tickets punched for classics. Only starred climbs allowed. And they wanted to try a hard one, just to see how it compared to their home crag. We had a great time climbing many classics over Sunday and Monday: Sixish, Frog’s Head, Shockley’s Ceiling, Horsemen, Laurel; Rhodedendron, Directissima, High Exposure, Madamme G’s.
Thanks to Brian and Vince for another productive trip.
Fight the pump, never surrender.
I figure we have the best time of year for the gunks on deck.
