During the winters of 1997-8, a vision of ice draped down granite faces became a reality. Oh, what creations! Left to right. Meow Mix, WI3 - top of the Vampire/Black Widow Gully (not pictured here). Hit and Run, WI4-5 (not pictured here). Mellow Yellow, WI4. Book of Secrets WI4 M3 - 2 pitch, left-facing corner (not pictured here). Brown Recluse, WI4+ M3 -2-3 pitch on the Black Widow Slab proper. Virtual Reality, WI5 M4 - thin start to fatter ice above. Hector Direct, WI3 M3 - long, angling ramp (not pictured here).


Ice screws, shorter were useful and rock pro.
