J.Lo on First Ascent.March '08


Start by climbing 2 body lengths of ice. Reach up high to clip first bolt and then continue up headwall on horizontal placements and small edges and seams to second smear/dagger of ice. Climb this to chain anchors which are slightly to the right.


About 50 feet left of the base of The Ramp there is sometimes a disconnected smear of ice on a streaked headwall. If in, it is quite obvious, and quite good despite itís short stature!


A couple screws to start and 6 Quickdraws for the bolts. There is a visible chain anchor at the ledge on top of the ice.
