Thx Munge. It was really just a PG13 trip.

Vitality did The Scepter.WI4
I would have to grow a third nut to get on that one.

Nice photos, I felt a tiny movement of my long dormant ice-climbing mojo.

Shane and Nick are super awesome. Great customer service and just a lot of fun to talk to.

We bought a couple of Grivel screws. Great price!

Plaid take a few photos of the cabin if you get a chance. I would love to see what it looks like.

Hey, Plaidman, I stayed in that cabin during the festival last winter. You'd better take your own lantern or other lighting; the one in the cabin sucks. Also, if I were going back there I'd bring a 12" length of 6" stove pipe with a damper in it, because there isn't one in place, so the oven never got up to biscuit temperature. Speaking of which: firing that woodstove before breakfast requires an alpine start!

Lights so we will bring um. How about the wood supply?

There was plenty of firewood, with a pretty stout and not terribly dull splitting axe.

Hey Plaidman!

Keep abreast of the weather and snowpack. A bunch of new on top of crappy layers is what is happening this week.

Have fun!

Thx man! We will keep a look out and bring a big shovel. Seriously though we will stay out of the canyon if the conditions suck

Conrad said I should put it on the list. We got GoPro's one for each of us. Video and pics. Maybe I should pack some extra underwear or just wear a pair of Depends. I may crap my drawers on that one. I will do my war cry. I scream William Wallace at the top of my lungs. That usually gets my blood up.

You are going to be guided by Craig Pope? Should be an interesting trip. Please post some photos of conditions up there. I am supposed to go in Feb. Conditions will change, but need stoke!

Craig answered my call out on FB when I let folks know we had room in our cabin. Craig climbs way harder that us. He's not our guide. We were hoping he would put up something for us when we run outta gas.

As for Feb. Hyalite only gets better as the season rolls on.
