Begin on the leaning slab and in the crack. Crux is pulling the roof. Finish 10-15 ft. after the roof.


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. Continue to the top of the cliffs and hike east then rappel in on the right (east) side of Rated P.G. and walk down the trail to the tops of Ice Fall and Lie Detector. Or find the talus field at the bottom and hike east skirting the cliff outcroppings. Beware of poison ivy!


Traditional protection. Standard rack. Or top rope from above.
