BETA PHOTO: High Fidelity from the Ice Palace trail.

Description 

Steep, sustained climbing on variable ice. Early season it tends to be a collection of 3-dimensional icicles, but by March it has usually filled in and offers much better ice. The first crux is usually about 50' up, and another steep section will be found at about 100'.


Location 

High Fidelity is the first big ice route you will come to as you hike into the Ice Palace area. A fairly long scree slope leads up to the base of the route. Rappel from the tree anchor.


Protection 

10 - 12 screws will usually do the job. Bring more if you like putting in pro. An anchor can be found on a tree to the left of the finish.
