This is a fun new way to reach the wall ice behind The Fang
. This route lies directly between 7th Chakra
to the left and Seventh Tentacle
to the right. Follow the 3 bolts up into the overhanging daggers and pull the curtain onto steep ice. Continue up the center/left edge to new chain anchors that hang from the roof above. This is an excellent route with positive holds and possible chimney moves on the free-hangers. Good thing is, you don't need the extra 5 balls to do the route.
3 bolts and a handful of medium screws. There are chain anchors above in the roof.
2015 note: the 3rd bolt has been somewhat compromised by a section of rock that fell out. It will soon be replaced in "better" stone.
2016: the 3rd bolt has been replaced in better (remember it's Vail) rock. Enjoy!

I think this variation is way better than the original start. More direct. You usually get a chimney rest between the dagger and wall, and who doesn't love pulling onto hangers?
