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...


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


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
