The Killer Pillar was pretty sun baked and rotten this year. There was one groove of ice that was hanging on to the far left. It was a fun pitch with lots of good stems and fun moves.

It was so warm and sunny up there it was hard not to be lackadaisical at the belays. I could of sat up there in the sun admiring the beautiful view all day.

It was pretty funny in retrospect when I rapped into the belay cave I accidentally came over a little to far to the lookers left and ended up hanging in space a bit away from the ice in a downpour from the daggers above. I had to fish out my tool, and swing into the ice, to hook it and pull myself in....oops!
