Pitchoff Quarry

Tom Lane and I took a ride up to the High Peaks area for his first ice climbing off Crane Mountain. Big shock in store for him: no thirty minute (or longer) approach, no snowshoes needed. After looking around the Chapel Pond area, we decided to continue on to Cascade Pass, where we settled on Pitchoff Quarry.

We started off on one of the easier routes, then worked our way up to really, really hard stuff. Long story short: we fried our arms on a lot of wild, steep ice. Great weather, great day, great climbing.
