My ankle is still giving me some grief but today I break in my High Alt boots – new Sportiva double shell boots with super gators – not ideal for ice climbing but needed at higher altitude and extremely cold weather – don’t want blisters the first time out – why not today for breaking them in?  It was a little warm for those boots – maybe 0 degrees all day so my feet were warm… okay hot… but they were comfy – better hope so for $900 boots!

So we did two the two multi-pitch climbs today.  The famous weeping wall of Moonlight falls Grade 4+ in high alt boots was interesting to say the least  - but very very cool!  On Moonlight Falls the ice was very sketchy– poor screw placements in brittle ice.
