Back at it today

Helmcken Rematch: Tim walked the 1.5 hours into the top, wrapped in to see if the white stuff was ice, it wasn't, back out with a monster pack, good effort Tim! EJ and I re-rigged the first five pitches, which have not gotten any easier but still have good ice to climb. Tomorrow we add to the route, likely another amazing pitch or two before the turns to frost. Do not want to drytool higher, plus there's the small matter of actually climbing all the pitches! Might start another line or two if we have time, this place is just awesome!

It's a hell of a lot of effort to just get back to our high point. Normally I'd take a rest day tomorrow, but game on! When the ice is good you gotta go at it.
