Moonlight ascend of Ellingwood Arete... well, at least an attempt. Started climbing when the sun started going down. Hit the ledges just as the moon started sneaking behind some storm clouds. Should have brought more powerful headlamps and done more simeol-climbing cause we got to the 5.6? pitches before hitting the big ledge beneath the arete and decided to hang on the ledge till morning... Words for the wise is don't climb with nylon pants on when it's still pretty warm cause when it gets cold, the moisture trapped in them cools down too!
