The weather report was calling for some warmer temps so Jon and I headed back out to Eklutna to try and do some climbing. When we pulled in to the Serenity Falls hut our friend Zach was just getting ready to leave, we had spotted him and his friend the day before on the glacier, its always fun to run into friends out in the woods.
Since the temps were still below zero we decided to go get some wood and warm the cabin before we left to go climbing.
Serenity Falls looked beautiful from the hut. It was a short approach to some really nice pitches. I was surprised at how nice the ice was despite the cold temps and dry conditions.

The climbing went smoothly, as did the descent and we were back to the hut before dark. It was Jon's 35th birthday so I cracked old jokes on him all day then lit a piece of cake on fire for him.
