Killer Pillar aka the wettest and most rotten mushroomy ice I've climbed thus far. Even so, it was the most fun lead I've done this season. Variability!!! So sweet. My pants and dreads and mid layer soaked thru to my skin lol. Dreads froze up too!!! SOOO SICK!!! Awesome day with Fred, Carlos, and Dave at the end of the fest. 📸 @dave.burleson
