I snapped this pic on my cellphone at the first pitch.  This was the LAST of the good ice.  Compare this to the pic taken with more snow and ice and you get the idea of how f&*^d up this route was when "dry".  This is a beautiful place to climb!  Looking up canyon from midway up the route.  Phil Wortman Leading the crux pitch.  A friendly Marmot poses a few feet below the summit of Crestone Needle in the early morning.  Humbolt Peak is silhouetted in the background.  Phil Wortmann leading the lower mixed section.
