N Face of Thatchtop.  First lap on Mixed Emotions  Scraping a friend's photo of Grand Teton Labor Day weekend.  The wettest year I can remember in CO looks like its setting up the wettest, fattest, earliest and best ice year in decades.  Deadhangs and tool mobililty drills have begun.  Meeker from Chasm Juntion 6/7  Sludging up the lower couloir.
