Ice Slot December 2010
Short, blue bulge in the beginning, then a pleasant stemming corner to an optional belay ledge (used to set up a TR on "Your Mother"--WI 5), then choose which exit you want to tackle---A short, but vertical pillar, or a exit right through a short bulge.
Left-facing flow 50 feet to the right of Hot Shot. Choose your exit...either left up a vertical pillar or escape right.
Screws, draws, screamers.

I found nothing pleasant about stemming the corner on this thing. My crampons were scraping the verglass on the right hand side and the ice was thin on the left - topping out the stem corner was ugly. Then again, I am not a graceful ice climber in the least.

When the middle cave-like pillar is broken or just unformed, this can feel pretty tricky! I followed it and it was very fun. I enjoyed stemming on very hollow delicate pillar on the left and pulling some funky moves to get out from behind the broken curtain.

Ice Slot was huge this year! Very straight forward.
Your Mama was the fattest it's ever been too. Blue Lines rates Your Mama as a 4+... What?
