Rick Barrett starting up the Drool

Description 

Past the last buttress with the big ice bulge (usually veraglass, super thick this year) is a hidden deep recess quite a ways south of it. At this recess is a large pillar (the crux). After the pillar enter the dike and continue up the steep chimney ice for another 130+ft. I never found it and that's good because there is no exit into the woods. No rope soloing this climb is a death wish.


Location 

Many go looking for this climb and don't find it the first time. Same approach as 'Veraglass or crash'.


Protection 

ice screws and small cams should suffice. Google Drool of the Beast, there are several great photos of it on line.
