A happy climber just below the Narrows - some 500' of 50 to 60 degree ice with some steeper steps. Portions of this were barely a shoulder width wide. Excellent, easy ice. Would be awkward for more than a party of 2 or for a party to rap down past another
  • Currently 0.00/5
We simul-climbed some with Steve in the lead, clipping but not stopping at the belay/rap stations he passed.

Back into the shade - Steve on lead.
  • Currently 0.00/5
More sun with elevation - we weren't racing the sun; instead, we reveled in the fleeting bits of warmth it almost provided.

Steve leading a steepish icy bit.

Sweet views that got sweeter as we climbed higher.

Steve about to re-enter the shade for a while.
  • Currently 0.00/5
A little fuzzy, but you get the idea: steep, fun ice as far as the eyes can see! Kind of narrow even though we were still far below the actual 'Narrows.' The ice was solid and even thick enough for short ice screws (pic courtesy of Steve Towne).
  • Currently 0.00/5
More excellent snow and ice coming up the 3rd pitch (pic courtesy of Steve Towne).
  • Currently 0.00/5
Good snow and excellent ice - we were having fun.

Although you can't see his face, I'm sure Steve was smiling as he climbed this.
  • Currently 0.00/5
The next lead was more of the styrofoam-snow-under-soft-snow combo topped off by a steep icy slot.
  • Currently 0.00/5
My lead was a bit of steep ice (below Steve in this pic) followed by squeaky styrofoam-like snow under some soft stuff. Easy cruising terrain - we were all smiles!
  • Currently 0.00/5
Steve at the 1st belay above the steep snow and the rock crux. Pro for this bit of climbing was a solid screw in good ice and a trustworthy #1 camalot in the rock.
