Awesome route, only lead an easy pitch in between all of the fun. Crux isn't where I thought it would be, and it felt really insecure.

Started up thinking we were on Gemini. Route was a direct line of mixed chimneys so must have been this. Unfortunately bailed just shy of the top assuming it was Gemini and the ice smear hadn't formed. Great route.. Tricky offwidth chimney was tough.
