Trip Report: beware..we were thwarted by the pencils gunshots, groans, and coos yesterday...after being smacked just once above the waist, p1 threatend to fall down...we waited a while to watch it fall downto no avail....it still stands unsent
That was rad, definitely pretty extreme looking getting pummeled from above. I was surprised to see how wide the Pencil was. I always looked up at that thing and it looks like a pencil from the road. Good work on the climb and vid.
Ken, we were surprised at how wide it was too, having always thought it to be more of a pillar. The ice was really shitty though, and as Cappellini pointed out - probably about ready to detach and fall down.
Shitty ice in Washington? Sorry for being redundant.
