This crag had at least 3 terrific farmed BC ice routes. In the winter of 1997, a vision of thin ice hanging down vertical granite became a reality. It had 3 pitches of some of the best ice in the Front Range, if briefly. Left Runnel, WI6 M5, mixed it up on the far left. Nosferatu, WI5, up the center used some rock route bolts. Unfortunately, this created some controversies. Can't we climbers live symbiotically? La Belle Morte, WI5+, on the right also used some rock bolts and also gained a very delicate pillar. Great vision and great work!


Screws, shorties and rock gear.
