Delicately sneaking up...

Sizing up the never ending madness!

Snapping a quick shot - cause I HAD too!! 30 ft out from a BD 000 C3 equalized with a #1 wild, even after I cleared a ton if ice...

Peaking out of the hole I carved out of a curtain...SUPER bummed about the fog...

Throwing up a hell yeah before dancing up the last 60 ft.

editor's note:
Really fun for me to add one of the best mixed climbs I have seen locally and a BIG Congratulations!... to Craig, Jess and Scott for getting it done!
