First route of the season, good conditions given the forecast! First pitch was awesome, not to bad and there was ice! Turf frozen to, second pitch the turf was not quite frozen and lots of powder, 8ft deep in places! Also did a 3rd pitch and both thought it was longer then 80m, probably 100m.

First pitch was safe but felt very hard when we did it. Fun climb, much longer than stated length.
