This is the center-most route that climbs under a big roof into the right-facing corner, joining Lowe Pressure to the top. Spicy holds and big reaches gain a high bolt. Scrunch up tight through the roof and turn it on solid holds, just right of the arete, and turn the arete left onto a large stance. Fire up through the ice curtain above. There is another mixed line 5m left marked by a red sling hanging with rap ring. I do not recall the name or the moves and if it is finished?!


This is on East Firehouse, in the center of the cliff. Rap from the top anchors, over a roof into a large, right-facing corner.


4 bolts. Anchor at the top on the large tree.

Rode a rock to the ground on this route at the 3rd bolt in Feb. 2006, broken helmet and lots of blood.
