Despite my recent backpacking trip to the Grand Canyon, I still wasn't ready to stop ice climbing for the season.  Brian had never been on this climb, and I was only at Tonys Nightmare once before eight years ago.  I remember struggling with low blood sugar most of the morning and the weather wasn't very good.  Nevertheless, we each led the pitch a couple of times and then did some top-roping too.
