photog. freezing my ass off, not climbing, so I could take pics of Joel!

I wasn't there 5 min until Joel started trash talking, so I had to finish The Awakening WI5 for him. The route is currently in good condition with some delicate hooks near the top on marginal screws. The rest of our crew enjoyed some top rope action on various other lines. Chip Kamin's son Jason was in town for the holidays and got to enjoy some great on ice action with his dad.
