Description 

Located to the right of the Last Gentleman and to the left of Reign of Terror, The Promenade is one amazing route! The crux (5+) comes on pitch 2/3 (depending on how you break it up) and consists of a hanging curtain of hollow, chandaliered ice. Belay from the cave behind the curtain then grip it and rip it! Continue up past the curtain on a little more mellow ground. Find a good stance then one more hard pitch (5) to the top. We encountered a couple rock moves before reaching the trees so holster those tools and get after it!

Location 

On the right side of the Last Gentleman amphitheater

Protection 

A passel full of screws and some chord for V-threads...the more screws, the fewer the pitches

Can do in two pitches with 70s, belay on prow above the crux column.
Take 12-14 screws...
