Section 2: Climbing-radio control tower's west face (9 pitches, m5 60* snow) and Mt. Francis' SW ridge (3,600', 5.8, 60* snow) Bacon & Eggs (AI4)

I know this isn't really splitboarding, but we did use the boards to approach the climbs. I'll keep this to a photo dump.

Our line on Radio control tower, a good warm-up for technical climbing in the Alaska range.

Mt. Francis Sw ridge.

We went up thinking we were going to do an overnight climb, but poor snow conditions forced us to bivy an extra night near the summit. Zach Clanton had the NPS chopper looking for us while they ferried loads to the 14k camp on denali, they spotted us hanging out on the summit. 2 open bivies, 20 or so pitches of technical rock, lots of thigh deep snow, and one terrible traverse under a huge cornice. Zach met us on the trail back to camp with some :doobie: and :guinness: :thumpsup:

Bacon and Eggs, Ryan had a bout of unfortunate timing at this belay :shit: :shit:

Zach was a good buddy out there.
