Good WI5. Fun exit.
9th climb down from upper bridge.
Down in "The Gorge" WOW! Incredible!
Starting out of the Gorge, Early season.
And it's steep, too. Lots of steep around here.
Trying not to OD.

Followed a friend up this a few years ago. Got totally worked and hung a few times cleaning screws. Always check the guidebook before letting your friend (a solid WI5 leader) talk you (a WI4 top roper) in to a climb at the bottom of the gorge. It was probably the hardest thing I have ever climbed.
On the bright side, I get to point it out to newbie ice climber friends when I go to the ice park and say "Yeah, I climbed that once. It was pretty hard, but nowhere near as bad as the stuff we are going to start you on out in South Park."
