Climbed Thunder Pyramid today. Nice climb...not anywhere near as loose as I thought it was going to be. It was actually easier than South Maroon IMO. Snow free almost the entire way except for some avoidable snow in the white gully itself. We tended to stay on the more solid ribs just to the right of the white gully looking up. Very beautiful day and calm. Gorgeous views of the bells. I have pics but they are still on my camera and I'm using the Aspen library now so I can't upload anything. I'll post pics sometime Sunday night.

once again sir, well done. have you been hanging in the roaring fork the whole time or are you just laying down a lot of tread in between? this one's on next weeks agenda. cathedral turned out to be awesome a few weeks back. now if you could just get me updated condition reports on the blanca group, crestone traverse, and the chicago basin for every other week for the next month or two, that'd be great.
