Description 

While this route appears to be a bolted crack (and climbs like a crack in places), there is much less natural protection than one would expect, making its sport-climb status pretty reasonable. Start by climbing through slightly fractured rock for two bolts to a stance below the crack feature. Jam, stem, and even chimney your way up the initial crack to where it jogs right to the arete. Finish up the arete to the anchors below the large roof.

Location 

On the far right side of the Icebox under a large roof; the second-to-last route you encountered on the wall.

Protection 

Five bolts and anchors. The route would go on natural gear but would be fairly run out as such.

You'll have to wait for the name and grade until the new Elevenmile Canyon guidebook that Bob D'Antonio and I are doing comes out next spring....
