Kama Bay, Ontario. Henning Boldt on Getting Orient...

Description 

Moderate classic at Kama Bay. Incredible climb. Can be done in either one or two (60m ropes required) pitches. The route consists of roughly two sections separated by a bowl/ledge in the middle. The first section can either be climbed diagonally up via the ramp system to the left (WI3+) or straight up (WI4+). From the bowl the ice steepens and checks in as WI4/4+ to the top.

Location 

The route is easily recognizable from the distance by the characteristic large daggers. It is the first large ice formation that can be seen to the right as one drives along Domtar 81 road. The approach trail starts to the right of "Crown Land" sign (see beta Photo) directly below the route. The trail through the woods is well marked by orange ribbons. Two rock bands on the approach are equipped with fixed ropes.

Protection 

Ice screws. Slings for the rappel.
