Where was that?
Still Here
been scared and battered. My hopes the wind done scattered. Snow has friz me, Sun has baked me,
Looks like between 'em they done Tried to make me
Stop laughin', stop lovin', stop livin'-- But I don't care! I'm still here!

Just curious, did you guys lead the ice first, or just set up the top rope and rap?

A ha! Yeah, I remember belaying my wife on the right flow and looking up to see you guys. Look forward to seeing the TR, we were wondering what route you guys might have done.

We used a boulder up top for a TR and a couple screws for directionals, but no leading. Good thing too, because the ice low on the flow was a little too manky for our confidence level this early in the season.
