Description 

This one doesn't always come in but when it is in, it is great and it is popular... Most people toprope it but it is a great lead (especially when its pegged out from TR traffic) but it can be thin so protection can be tricky... The good news is, if its thin you might be able to clip bolts...

about 15 feet right of Franky Lee (4+) look for the next solid flow of ice... A vertical curtain gets you started as you do your best to avoid the pump... The first section is maybe 40 feet of vertical ice and this is the crux, just don't pump out... The you get a little rest, plug in a couple good screws and maybe climb another 20 feet of steep stuff to a chain anchor, or continue on a couple rock moves to the trees...

Great fun... do it...

Location
