Description 

From the top of the dirt mound, the route starts slightly down and right. Follow the bolts straight up on polished holds, through a couple small roofs. Towards the top the route traverses right. Initially it climbs straight up and then trends left after the first few bolts.

Location 

This route is on the Lower Ice Cave Wall, just right of Wake Up Call.

From the parking lot by the bridge, follow the signed train for the Ice Cave. Follow the trail through the lower ice cave. After passing through some trees, you will see a dirt mound in front of a polished-looking wall.

Protection 

Bolts to a chain anchor.

8 protection bolts and 2 anchor bolts were replaced on this route in the spring of 2012 with support from the ASCA.

The top of this seemed very difficult. Maybe I just missed the holds, but I did Mel's Diner next to this and thought it was easier.

The guidebook has it right: "Admire your handsome face in the polished starting holds...." It's well-traveled and super-slick for the first 2 bolts. Ground is flat & dirt, but I wish I'd stick-clipped 1st (& maybe 2nd!) bolt. The top becomes low angle but can be a little heady.
