Leaving Valdez is always easier when your tired, but we still wanted to try and sneak in a couple pitches. I voted for P.O.S, but was shot down in favor of the 19 mile wall.
Team Ryan and Kremer
Things were going good and motivation was running high among the team for at least 50 feet, then Ryan really started getting bogged down by the waist deep snow wallow. The climbs started to look really far away and we all agreed it would make more sense if we had snow shoes. So back to the car we went unanimously.
The First Few Feet
Still feeling the urge to leave the car however, Kremer suggested $50 Dollar Falls, a hidden piece of ice out of town. To make a long story short, we didn't find the climb, or more optimistically, the climb just wasn't in to be seen this year. A great ski tour through the woods with fun people made it a thoroughly enjoyable mellow day out, exactly what I was looking for.
