December 4, 2014 Ice Climbing Report (Thanks BJ)

Highway 1 – Hope

We (BJ and company) climbed the first 3 pitches of A Better Mousetrap on Wednesday (Dec 3). That includes the 1st pitch of Mousetrap and the first 2 pitches of Better Mousetrap.
Pitch 1 (Mousetrap) – Good overall shape, flowing water and some holes in the middle.
Pitch 2 of Mousetrap – hollow, lots of water pouring out of main flow and onto the ice.
For Pitch 2, we opted to climb the righthand Better Mousetrap variation (see pics below).
Better Mousetrap pitches 1 and 2 (after climbing pitch 1 of regular Mousetrap) – Fun, varied, protectable.
