Another predawn start, this time from Provo canyon. Andy, Chad, Jared and I were planning on going up Timp via a south facing chute but weren't exactly clear on the entry so we decided to head up one of the West facing shots down on the south end.

|Morning light on the ridge, Andy at the saddle|
|Jared on a "mandatory" dry tool|
|More booting, more big cornices|
|Summit hut, RIME!|
|One of many large NE/E/SE facing crowns and a LOT of sneaky cornice in the foreground|
|Andy and Chad entering Cold Fusion|
|A few scrapes, 2 pairs of tights, 1 cutoff t-shirt, 3 hungry boys|
Roughly 10 hours, 15 miles, and 10,000 feet later we (just me, the others dont have gutter palates) were eating cold pasta and drinking warm coke, yum.
