2010-03-23 Northeast Gully of Laurel Mountain

David and I decdied to head to Laural Mountain for a day climb.  After working a 12 hour day at my job, I drove up and crashed at the trailhead at 1am.  We woke up at 7am and headed up the route.  We arrived back at the car 15.5 hours later exhausted.  We drove ad I arrive din Burbank two hours befor eI needed to start work the next day.  The route was 35-50 degree snow and 3,200 feet of technical gain.  The snow was crap, so we simul climbed 50% of it, used ice screws, rock pro and some pickets.
