Brian leading his way up Tourist Trap. Very thank...

Yield to mining vehicle traffic MORE INFO >>>


Climb the ice in the dihedral immediately right of Slip Slidin' Away up to the big roof and the end of the ice. Traverse out right along a horizontal with fixed pins to a fixed pin anchor.

We rapped from here, but in cooler years it looks like you can add another pitch?

A decent route worth doing if you are in the area.


Up the Camp Bird rd from Choppo's in the same gully as Slip Slidin' Away.


Screws for the ice, a cam or two to supplement the pins towards the end (optional). Doubles and a few long slings helpful to minimize rope drag.
