    Hiked in to Huntington Saturday morning trying to be optimistic after the warm weather late last week. We were hoping to do pinnacle, but it looked to be in pretty rough shape from the trail, so we opted for O'dell's instead. First pitch took 13cm screws well, but anything longer than that was a bit of a struggle to find a place for. At the start of the second pitch there were some large, hollow sounding, detached slabs to make it interesting, but the ice grew thicker and better bonded up to the second belay. It seemed a better line could of been had if we had stayed to the far right at the start of the second pitch. A few cams were useful to have along the way.
    Was considerably colder as we were heading down saturday night, hopefully the cold sticks around!

    Did you guys descend the auto road? Think I might have run into you.

    No, We rappeled the route and came back down the huntigton ravine trail with a long detour helping someone who had fallen on pinnacle and broken their ankle. Ended up back at the AMC lodge at like 1:30 in the morning.
