Mr. K 1 Apr, 2018 AltLd dnf Ross had a hard time on the lower pitches and we were running short on time so we switched to Number Three Gully Buttress at the intersection and took the Direct Finish. The final steep corner of Two-Step looked nails, thinly iced and barely protectable. One for another day.
