Bump.

Went on a slushy/crusty outing a few weeks ago and caught some not so graceful skinning. I'm not gonna name names...
...but check the filenames of the photos for his initials.

Correct, it's just up canyon from the Wave Wall.

The climber in orange, is my brother Jonathan. These falls were my first steep ice leads (1977). Near the top of the pillar, I took a 15' plunge when my humming bird ice tool popped out...my first (but not the last!) fall on ice. These ice falls were formed by a leak in the canal above. The following year, the leak got plugged. As you can see in one of the other photos, I'm climbing with a Hummingbird and a Roosterhead, with the latter being the first locally available drooped pick tools.
