Description 

I havent climbed this one out of the water yet but i did do it on TR... The walls are very smooth and slick when you are wet so that makes it really hard... There is a jutting rock under the water that makes falling a bad idea...

Basically climb the corner to the top.... Lay backs and fingerlocks abound... The climbing gets easier as you go...

The name comes from when i fell through the ice while aiding the route...haha good times...

Location 

Crisp corner on the left side of the cliff...

Protection 

You could lead it on gear in the winter but a TR works or just watch out for the rock when you hit the water...

This is a tough climb but its no 5.10. With dry hands/shoes/rock it can be climbed by most beginners... get it wet, and thats another story altogether

The R rating holds true though as the rock juts out a few feet underwater at the base of the climb. Dont fall, be safe
