Ice Fall (5.7) - 95' - June 2009

Description 

Slab climbing Keweenaw style! No real crux. Fun warm up climb.

  • *Ice climbing in the past on Ice Fall (go figure) when the conditions are right.


Location 

Ice Fall Area - 2 miles south of the northern Cliff Dr. junction with US 26/41 just before Phoenix. Locate large mossy boulder in the lower flats in the woods just prior to the hillside rising. There are many boulders, but this one stands out a bit. Hike uphill a few hundred feet. Approach from either above or below. From below cross a talus field and broken cliff edges, watch for poison ivy. Or continue to the top of the cliffs and hike east then rappel in on the right (east) side of Rated P.G. which is Tip Toes. Walk down the trail to the tops of Ice Fall and Lie Detector from here.


Protection 

Thin pro on lead. No bolts. Natural anchor. The top puts you at to the path/rock ledges in between the top of Ice Fall and Rated P.G.
