Clinton McKinzie climbs one of the minor ice flows that can form in this basin ca. 2006 - unnamed route - FA: Clinton McKinzie & Vince Ruland.  This picture was taken 2/1/15 - the ice is much leaner this year but still very climbable. 9 years ago I did my FA on this ice.    Me leading on FA in Jan 2006. <br /> <br />Photo credit: Clinton McKinzie.  Me on first ascent (to my knowledge) in Jan. 2006 in a FAT ice year. <br /> <br />Photo credit: Clinton McKinzie.
