You're making me jealous with all this ice climbing. Looks like a great weekend!

We did the first two pitches of Emerald Milkshake: the first 30 m WI4 pitch, followed by a bunch of snow slogging and a little easy ice soloing. The 2nd pitch was a full 60m, mostly WI3, but getting steeper in the last 20 m (very, very fun). There are two more pitches above (with more snow slogging), but I think both are more like 15-20 m in length. We turned around rather than finish so we could be on the trail by dark.

Bozo's was a combination of many things:
1. we didn't start from the car until noon.
2. we wanted to be back in Cody relatively early so we could hang out with people.
3. it took us 2 hours to do the approach because of the fog and fresh snow.
4. it was a cloudy 5F, and Grace was wearing Trango S summer boots that were still damp from the day before.
5... I could continue, but lets just say it wasn't our day.
