Angel of Fear round 2

I was pretty bummed when Peter and I did not get to do Angel of Fear. So on 2/28 Miah, Pat, Travis and i got a early start by waking up at 5:30 and had a blast. This thing is so fun the first pitch had some bad ice with some good ice thrown in as well. Pat crushed it and it was a bit heady too. P2 was amazing to put it mildly. The roof features add some exposure when you have to traverse back left and make the climb that much better. I had to bail after Angel cuz i had to work at 4:30 but everyone else whent at did Automatic Control Theory in a giant 230 foot pitch pretty sick. Nice job everyone and i hope i cant get another lap on that beast before she falls down. Who knows if it will form again so i am glad Miah was there to shoot some great photos so we can remember how fun it was. Thank you Miah!

Angel of Fear

Peter and i went to Sanaquin Canyon 2/26 to try and squeeze in Angle of Fear before he left to Spain. This thing only comes in about once every ten years or so. The approach pitch was fine but the first real pitch was extremely chandeliered and total junk. Peter tried to climb the back side of the pillar because their was a heavy stream of water coming off the front of the pillar and he fell. At this point we said FUCK this and went to do candle stick. Candle stick was totally detached from the top and delaming with water flowing behind the ice. IT was scary as shit but i was able to get her done thank GOD.

Silly pointy climbing

Miah, Jay, Travis, and i all went to Santaquin Canyon a week or so ago to shoot some mixed routes and hopefully the candle stick as well. The mixed climbing was good i did one route that has the word baghdad (M8+) somewhere in it. Then i tried another that was supposed to be M9+ but everything felt supper doable to the last five feet and there where not holds. I think you might have to traverse left. Here are some pics of both routes shot by the JBY (Jay Beyer) thanks Jay its nice when the photographers i go out with are nice enough to email me some shots to post! Cough Miah Cough Miah!
