Nosferatu.

Description 

It boasts one route 'Nosferatu' at about M9-10 or so. I put this route up in summer when water was dripping off the lip of the cave. When winter rolled around, the water dried up and never formed ice; however, late in the season the cliff was coated with verglas (thin). There is also a big cliff that gets some ice just above this cave which has at least one unclimbed route. There is huge potential here for harder routes that will most likely be dry but great TRAINING routes anyway.


Getting There 

This cave is about a twenty minute hike east of the BELFRY (upper Spiral Staircase).

Super fun route and unlike any other Vail mixed line. Long reaches and some weird contorting at the lip of the cave. This is in the HELL'S CAVE area....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
