The 2013-2014 Steep and Deep challenge is well underway. The challenge — held in honor of the late Sion Milosky — commends the best Pipeline photo of the winter. And on Black Friday, the North Shore awoke to a deep blue opportunity to get precariously steep and deep. Here are 31 fine photos from the day that glory was on sale.
