Reggie climbing The KlonDyke, 5.10a Ice Box. Spear...

The Original Ice Queen! 

Nearly 70 feet of pockets, ledges, lay backs and wicked fun 5.10 minus movement that will get you pumped like a bitch...and it's right next to the road.

Starts on slabby jugs and heads off into overhung face climbing. Stick a sick, layback flake just right and gain some more big pockets and jug ass ledges that trend right. Crux is definitively at midroute and involves big moves on super-positive but technical holds. The pucker factor picks up a bit when you move onto the arete and navigate the oodles of possible pumpy pockets and bomber holds right up until the fat lady sings.

Don't drive by with jumping on this big girl! If you climb five ten, or want an easier warm-up, this route is a GOOD climb. Probably not a classic, but definitely not a bomb. It is clean, safe and well-bolted. Get on it and have a gay ole time!

Location: Two Kings Area 

Park in The Shadowlands parking lot. Put on your Wolverine steel toed boots and hike across the road. Stay left of the sick, overhung boulder. The KlonDyke is a ways left of the big, black flake (that sits detached from the main wall) and just right of a tall, dead tree.


Bring 10 quickdraws.
