Comments: Distant memories when I chatted with Jim Detterline a number of years back...I think he told me about 3-4 little pitches he had done along this way.

Comments: There is a chance that Jim Detterline has done this. He's told me about a number of short ice pitches he had done along the way between Lyons & Estes Park. This sounds like one of them.

Comments: This may be the line Greg Sievers mentioned in a comment / conditions bit. If so, he said he has never seen it come in before this year despite going there yearly, at least.

Comments: If that is to the left, then maybe it is Northwest Face of Thatchtop, WI3+, 3 pitches?

Comments: The third pitch as described here seems to have cleaned up enough to make it reasonable and fun to climb. There is a left hand chip that flexes somewhere near where you reach out right to the rounded arete, maybe at 1/3 height. That feature out left of the last bolt shifts. It seems to be a detached bit of rock. Not wanting to harm my belayer, I left it alone. Be careful not to pry it outward with your left hand or foot.

Comments: This climb varies in condition. At times, it is a WI5 to get started, since it can be one of those where you have no ice to armpit high, which can require trickery to get started, maybe even a figure 4 or 9. At other times when it touches down, it can be a WI3. FWIW, there is no WI3-5 rating available currently.

Comments: #3.5 &/or #1 Camalots protect that wide slot at the start.

Above, at the crux, the 3 wires (#4, 6, 7) you can get in are a bit iffy as they cleaned pretty easily with a minimal tug.

Comments: Benjamin, I think I submitted the description back a long time ago when it was climbingboulder.com. Rather than waste a "lot of cyberspace" with a bunch of aqueduct leaks, I entered one "route" with a WI2 and this info in the description as (L->R):

"1. Short WI2-3 flow; 2. M5 TR line with crux finish; 3. WI4 fat ice curtain; 4. WI5- R edge of curtain with traverse to small tongue of ice; 5. WI4- thin ice; 6. WI4 ice ri... more >>
