|Saturday, climbed about 250ft of grade 3+; that's
short vertical sections 10-15 ft with frequent rests, rappelled down a gully in the dark,
300m through hip deep snow across a 45 degree slope. LOF (lots of fun)
second day, Sunday, we climbed about 260ft from the bottom, 2 pitches, a short first
then the whole length of the rope (60m, 200ft) on the second. Pretty tuckered out
arriving at the top. This was full on grade stiff grade 4 (long vertical
sections with rests).
Sledding out was a fun finish to the day.
