Thanks everyone for an enjoyable and safe weekend. At work this morning a presentation was given to the effect that human nature is to think accidents always happen to other people. I responded that if you do something like ice climbing long enough it will happen to you, but we proved
we are safe climbers this weekend.
In attendence were:
For those of you who didn't go to June Lake on Sunday, we found Tatums fully in the sun so moved over to Horsetail falls, which was also in the sun and had seen recent a large scale collapse. We then moved to the gully immediately to the right of Horsetail and established a mixed ice, snow, and rock route which took us all day. Ray lead a v-thread practice session that Will put into action recovering all our gear.
If anyone still owes me $15 I have no idea who you are, so you are safe, for the moment.
Sincerely, Tom Cronin
