After some brainstorming we decided to do some exploring so the next morning we set off to try a line I had seen across valley from Miller Might. After a bit of scrambling we made it to a comfy belay and I set off. After some delicate runout climbing I managed to make to to the top of the steepness but was unable to find a solid belay. After what seemed like hours and lots of weirdness I was finally able to find a big enough ice lens up by the snow slope to make a v-thread. Not trusting this belay enough to bring Mark up on I gingerly rappelled and we returned to the cabin for John-made spaghetti :)
Overnight a warm front moved in and we awakened Sunday morning to a snowy gale. Unable to climb everyone decided to clear out the cabin and after a short ride back across the lake we were back to the car.
Tap Dance, 25m WI4+
Delicately tap and hook your way up this fun route, it would be much better with a bolted belay on the wall directly above the ice flow, if you climb it take a bolt kit!
