Battle of the Bulge, first ice section...


The Battle of the Bulge is rated a 3 in the book. The bulge is huge and has many ways to take it on. Staying on the right of the bulge will keep it in the 3 grade. Taking the bulge up the center makes it more in the 4 range. Climb the beautiful bulge to the shelf. Finish up the second tier to the trees above.

screws, slings, Rap from trees or walk off left.

definitely in grade 4 condition this year. Steeper and longer (more sustained) than the Pegasus pillars without the advantage of stemming. Really fun place to climb and well worth the effort to find it.
