1/17/09 -- Unnamed from the base of the climb
Mt. Nebo Wilderness on south side of Santaquin Canyon. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Two 20-30' steps of near-vertical to vertical ice separated by a shallow snow gully. Gets hit by the sun pretty badly, so conditions vary greatly.


Location 

North side of the canyon directly across from Automatic Control Theory. You can see the flow clearly from where the river crosses below the road.


Protection 

Screws up to 16cm. No fixed anchors, but some small trees/bushes at the top for a natural anchor. A 60m rope-stretcher, so be careful.

Descent:
Ideally, a double-rope rap from the trees.

However, we descended by hiking up and around an adjacent gully to the west, then doing a somewhat sketchy 20ft downclimb.
