Wowie Zowie.

After Mount Huntington, Colin and I thought some waterfall climbing would be fun, but after a nice day on Wowie Zowie, we remembered that all waterfall climbing is the same and decided to take advantage of the rare alpine conditions to squeeze in one more alpine climb. So, on March 20, we skied up the Valdez glacier to the bottom of Abercrombie Mountain.

Unclimbed ice.

This ice next to our camp on the glacier is probably unclimbed.
