Loch Ness WI4 M5  CO : CO Ice & Mixed : Crested Butte
A route like this is like the Loch Ness Monster, elusive and ever sought after.... Great second buttress rock, some interesting mixed climbing, and a bit of ice make this a great route close to home.P1: head up the gully until you hit a short rock step ~25 feet. Climb two more short rock/ice steps to a ledge with a chimney on the left and an OW with a chockstone to the right.
