|Ice other than Casket (Duluth)
Located in a nook that sees no winter sun, the ice is generally hard, brittle and thin!
There are two obvious lines here. Pictured is the right hand line. Solid WI5 on a thin pencil of ice to a roof. Screws are hard to get, so unless you are stout TR this.
Heading south on I-35, turn off on Midway Road and go left. Take your first left on Midway (Thompsen Hill Road) and drive for 1/2 a mile. Make sure you park well away from the curve. The ice will be obvious on the cliff a 1/4 mile away. Bushwack in and make sure you do not cross the private property!
Stubby screws, thin rock gear (a #2 Camalot might be helpful too) or TR.
