Prusik Peak Round 2

Went up intending to do Solid Gold and the Stanley-Burgner, with snow-related slowdowns and general tiredness we wound up doing only the latter.

Snow Lakes 

Prusik "Peak" (face might be a better term) and Lake Viviane 

infinity slab bivouac 

Prusik and Boxtop 

Pitch 1 (5.8 handcrack left of chimney - start of Beckey-Davis route) 

End of our second pitch, wetter than we would have liked 

keyhole nonesense 

I am beginning to hate squeeze chimneys
