Had a good time and made good time climbing the TCs on Sunday, despite some slightly dry conditions... fun stuff!

The best part of waking up is... the fear.

The snow was wind scoured and good for steps.

 

There was one bouldery move getting onto the snow of the second couloir (the chimney thing pictured above). Felt like, I don't know, 5.9. The rocky bits were never very tricky for very long. We encountered that after rapping from the red slings on the bypass; in retrospect, it might have been better (easier, better gear) to do a traversing pitch upward from that rap station. Seems like that's what Nelson's description says to do anyways...
