This climbs between the bulges. I soloed it, but could have gotten stubbies in if needed. If soloing, take a rope and rap off trees at the ledge.

OK I made a new area and then assigned it to you. Please add a description, directions, GPS, and change the name if you'd like. Now you can also add other areas. Thanks Gokul and Jugs.

Can we remove "Juggs and Jill's area" I don't think we need an area of Grant county ice, then another area under that called Juggs and jills to then list the one route. I think all ice can be listed under the Grant county area as the locations of the ice are in the route descriptions.
