Determining the path of least impact.


This is a very nice thin fun column to climb. This column is located on the right portion of the ice at Lincoln falls. This is a 1 pitch climb about 80-100 feet, and can be lead or toproped from chains above the route.


2-4 screws.

Toprope Protection 

There are bolts and chains above this route for a toprope. I would recommend bringing 30 feet of webbing because the bolts are set back pretty far back from the route.

Toproping a pillar like that is lame! You beat the hell out of it, and when someone want to lead it, it's crap!

With all due respect AC, some of us chicken-shit ice leaders (like me) bash the ice up quite a bit more if we lead than TR lines. Getting secure placements to move up on lead means more ice damage than delicate placements with the security of a TR.

I agree with Leo.
