Did you climb the pillar?


WE DID. Today. On toprope. Strenuous but straightforward. Could I lead it? Probably not. And there a crack 90% of the way through it at the top, as if it wasn't spooky enough.

I was not in a rush to lead it, or TR it. 'Death on a Stick' I made up just cuts it looked so spooky gnarly. I guess it does have a name tho: Polar Vortex Pillar..

It's not climbing 'till you're bleeding.
