Yeah man! What kind of pro did you place after 2nd ice step? I was only able to place a handful of screws that were mostly psych pro with screamers backed up with more psych pro. I did find a decent screw placement in a smear of ice her and there. My "I'll get some pro in" moral was good due to the illusion that I would be able to sling a block up ahead. But each block would have required some serious excavating and wasn't worth the effort. I finally put in a good picket just short of the summit and finished it off on nearly the exact same line that you chose through the rock bands.
The NF is definitely a rad climb.Nice work guys.
