Amadeus Ice Climb

Will Gadd

Minimal snow on the approach as well as above the climb. Moderate to strong winds on the climb, with some transport observed on the ridge lines to the west. Water is still dripping so the scratchy slab so it should get icier, the ice wasn't useful until the end of the slab. The slab protects well with a rack of cams to #4. A #4 is nice :). The user ice was alternately surprisingly dry and hollow then wet. We retrieved the stuck orange rope. It's not in usable condition, but if anyone wants it DM me on Facebook or something, it's on my deck.

Snow conditions were: Hard, Wind affected. Riding quality was good.
