Hidden Dragon & Candlestick Maker - Ghost River

Second pitch of Candlestick Maker.

Had a great day with my good friend Trent Hasse in the Ghost River area. We went to an area neither of us had visited and climbed Hidden Dragon (WI 4, 50m) and then the spectacular Candlestick Maker (WI5, 140m) above. Candlestick Maker had an amazing pillar in a cave to start and then a nice long finishing pitch of sustained 4+ ice.

Below the 1st pitch "candlestick" on Candlestick Maker.

Climbing the "candlestick"
Also in the area, the Joker (50m, WI2) looked fat, Black Rock Falls (35m, WI4+) looked good, and The Real Big Drip (200m, M7+, WI7) looked fantastic. I've got to get back in there to climb that one while it's good!
