Barry racking up for Cave Man.
Cave Man start towards the right side of the Main Wall. It starts up a nice 50 foot pitch of slightly non vert ice to a bolted station to the right. It is totally possible to link this with the meat of the route which is the obvious popsicle in the middle of the wall. This section is steep and sustained. You will find a fixed anchor with knots, stoppers and pins to belay.
Step left off the anchor to gain some thin ice and rock depending on how fat the ice is. Continue to the top and belay. You can either rap from here in two raps or walk off to your right past the top of Chouinards. Pumpy, sustained, and rad.
6-8 screws and a few pins and cams if the ice is thin for the top.
