|Back in the Valley of the Devil!|
|Jen started up pitch one, and missed the first bolted belay turning it into a mega-simul-climbed pitch ... |
but worse, managed to open a river near the top of it.
|So, early in the day we had some pretty soaked ropes which then froze into fat cables. Forcing the ropes through the belay devices was probably more work than climbing.|
|But we continued up, into the top bowl for the final two pitches.|
|Cables. Much heavier on the walk back, too!|
