Damn, that looks very condition dependent. Steele cliffs would be a crumbling nightmare without a thick coating of rime.

This was post storm in October- 2005 I think. We were wondering if this line had been climbed before, due to the ephemeral conditions. Probably has by a bunch of old hardpeople, but who knows. Still an adventure especially since most screw placements were a joke...

I've done a bunch of lines through there over the years. Clients never know how much danger they're in.

One word...Inauspicious. But still very cool to do.
