Sick, I did this in loose wet ice conditions, and I bet I had more crap pouring on me than you guys. Not only was I pulling out rock but huge chunks of ice. The loose ice hid several key gear placements, so the run-outs were deadly. But hey, should I have expected anything else?

Hessie Chimney in lean conditions, 7/21/06. My friend Chris and I were looking to sharpen our drytooling skills, but we didn't want to scratch up any rock routes, so we climbed this route. As too be expected, the route was rather loose without the ice, but it still felt about M5ish.
