Beartooths + Cody

Before Matt was unexpectedly called back to work, we climbed for a couple days in the Beartooth Mountains of Montana and got one day on the South Fork of the Shoshone River, outside Cody.

First (above) and last (below) pitches of Woodbine Falls - WI3, before the first pitch and between the two we soloed a fair amount of WI2.

Hellroaring Falls (WI4)

Crux pitches of California Ice, first pitch was about a 50m WI3, second doesn't look it from the photo but was a solid 60m WI4, instead of doing the WI3 pitch above and walking around we rappelled from a piton anchor to the right and then made a v-thread about halfway down.

Stringer (WI3), in the Slow Turning drainage outside of Cody. First pitch of Slow Turning goes at WI4 and was not in, Matt claims that after I left to scout up the valley a chunk of ice the size of a refrigerator fell off.
