Dan Bogardus on East of the West.


The climb is situated between the West Corner and the left side of Lowe Gravity Day. Climb the rampy left or middle or choose the steeper, right side next to the curtain of Lowe Gravity Day.


This lies on Firehouse West, immediately right of West Corner.


Screws. Long runners for a top rope.

This is really the main big fat ice flow/gully at west Firehouse. Historically it has always been called "The East of The West" and is usually only WI 2. If choosing the right side of the climb, it could be WI 3.

Thanks, Mia. I have changed the route to the original name and grade.
