Description 

Ice Phantom is a good WI2/2+ in Orient Bay. A bit out of the way, compared to Tempest, Hully Gully, etc., the approach is the first crux, be prepared for some bushwhacking.
It's visible from the road, and the start of the route is in a rock gully, with small towers on each side. Worth going to if you've done the usual 2/2+ climbs in Orient Bay, you'll probably have it all to yourself.


Location 

North of Hully Gully on Highway 11, not as far as the McKirdy Lake climbs.
We approached in the dark, and I couldn't see the "Zero" mile marker. Hit the trip meter when Parallax is directly on your right, and stop when you're at mile 2.0. It'll be visible up on the south side of the road. Find an orange flag on a tree and start bushwhacking.


Protection 

Screws, webbing on a tree at the top.
Your rack of screws will depend on your comfort level on ice of that difficulty and length.
Two ropes for rappeling from the top.
Bring some tat for beefing up the rap anchor.
