Nate Erickson. Icebreakers Arete. 3/6/11.


Sustained and steep ice climbing. As of March 2011 the route was in WI 4+ condition. Initial pillar led to more gradual ice. Spectacular and exctiting finish on ice curtains with tricky screw placements.

Descent: rap from the trees, either down the route or the chimney to the left.


Ice screws (maybe a stubby or two for the top). A pair of 60m ropes.
