Description 

This is the left most climb at The Narrows. It is semi-reliable and comes in last in the season. This climb gets its name from the crux of the climb which is the cigar shaped pillar. You can by pass the first pitch which is kinda sketchy because of the thin ice, mixed climbing and lack of protection, by scrambling up the right side and then back onto a ledge. There is an old fixed piton right before the third step on the bottom part of the climb. It doesn't really do anything for you because its out of the way and its old but it might give you a little peace of mind because its before the crux of the climb.


Location 

Form the parking lot walk left past Main Flow until you reach a 45 mph sign. Walk a little past the sign and you should be right at the start of Cigar. Cigar is the left most climb at The Narrow. Make sure you don't get it confused with 45 mph which is to the right of cigar.


Protection 

Standard Ice Rack, Some Rock Pro for the mixed section.
