Scott Arno leading Chia Direct(4+), Frankenstein C...


To the right of the pretty, right leading line of least resistance in the middle of the Amphitheater which is Chia there is a much more direct and intimidating line... Chia Direct climbs steep ice from below the finish of Chia straight up... That's really all to be said as far as description of the route but it is worthy to note that conditions can be a bit variable from candled and not too great for protection to a nice solid wall of ice...

Have fun...


Right of the start of Chia there is a big wall of steep ice leading up to the finish of Chia directly, hence the name...


Screws should do it...
