|The Left Hand Fork Ice Climbs
Add Photo Add Comment Printer View
Steep, sustained, sometimes a thin horror show, sometime fat and sassy. Usually appears as a fat column attached to the steep cobble face. A stunning and sought after classic.
Located as the biggest, most consistant forming flow on the Orangutan Wall (if walking up the Left Fork, this wall will be one of the last tall walls on the right side prior to the Left Fork kind of petering out into shorter cliffs). On the left-ish side of the wall which is located on the other side of the rock prow to the left of Bowling Ball Head (past the narrow slot of Deep Throat Maple).
Hopefully screws will suffice. Careful inspection may reveal summer rock climbing bolts under thin ice for pro. Three bolt rappel anchor on the right.

Andy took some great pics of Caroline on this climb a in late Jan... I'd love to post one up, but don't want to incur any possible copyright infringements.
Andy... would you be willing to post one up? If not, I'd understand as well, but damn those were nice!
