|The Fang's front is in what I would guess is WI4+. It was a good time. Hey Rob, who is the bad Mo Fo again!|

|Spankin Hard on 2-1, Half cauliflower and the other half insecure hollow column about 3 feet in diameter. The top requires a pull around a small roof that will suck the last bit of circulation from your pumped out arms. Definitely, a full value lead by anyone's criteria.|

|It is touching, but the whole thing is hollow on the inside. A week maybe two and it'll be prime condition. Was in the amphitheatre on Saturday.|

The Fang is in the wildest condition I have ever seen it. It is likely 4+ or 5+ but very technical. Ice florets all the way up to "summit curtain". Yep, there is a curtain of ice hanging down instead of the standard steep pillar. There are several ways to climb it including "chimneying" up and right and pulling a small overhang or going left and pulling a larger more pumpy 5+ curtain.
Go now because it will not last long.

|2nd ascent by Bill Weiss in '82. Leanest conditions that were still climbable with Zero's and Footfangs. Amazing lead.|
