Myself on Mindbender, Feb. 11th
Steep ice! The epitome of ice climbing at Lake Willoughby, in my honest opinion.... Some good stemming in places will offer a bit of a rest but this line is steep and unrelenting all the way to the top. This route is pretty much a plumb line but if climbed in two pitches, I'm sure you could find a decent stance midway.
The Mindbender Amphitheater at the north end of the cliffs at Lake Willoughby...to the right of Call of the Wild and to the left of Renormalization
Bring a whole bunch of screws (10 ish) depending on how many pitches you make it..
