Manitou #7 January 2010

Description 

A very reliable formation (the only reliable formation) that develops as a nice chunk of ice, typically dripping wet along left flank. Harder variations on left side.

Location 

The last major ice climb (in most years) before another narrowing of the cnayon). The Manitou Falls can begin to be seen from this point as you look up river.

The left-hand variation climbs in and out a little cave. Very fun!
