Middle Curtain


This route is the the steep curtain that forms frequently between The Pencil and The Eraser. It is similar to Secret Cicle in both difficulty and length. The first 30' feet is dead vertical and then eases up dramatically after that to the rap slings. It is a little difficult to get in good protection in the first 20 feet or so as the the curtain is usually thin and chandeliered. It gets thick and fat after that.


Rap from slings on tree just above and slightly left of the route.


A few screws.

I've climbed this in 2004, 2006, and 2007 and it is the best pure water ice line in the Belfry area in my opinion. Some years the curtain dosen't touch down, but it is a 'bit more steeper then the Pencil or Eraser when it does. Cheers.
