"Snowballed" felt high and super scary enough. F**ck doing it otherwise!

Climbed above lots of pads and lots of snow. A little highball for a boulder problem but not E6!

Massively made safer by the snowdrift but really good to do the climbing.

Above six foot of snow but still felt pretty bold on the crux.
