Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionIt is a narrow, slabby fin of granite with a steep dark gully on the right side and a line of bolts up the right side of the face. There may be another line bolted by now - not sure, it wasn't there in mid January 2001. The left side, Buddhist Pest, can be led at about 5.7, but it is grungy.
A. Buddhist Pest, 9-, 1p, 90', gear.
B. Crucifiction, 11, 1p, 90', TR.
C. Mantra, 11, 1p, 85', bolts.
Getting ThereThe Icon can be easily found by approaching via the West Approach trail as detailed in Rossiter's book. Briefly: from the parking area, walk up the road (i.e. continuing the way you were driving) about 50 yards or so. Pick up a distinct trail to your left that drops down through the trees. At the bottom, the creek becomes visible and the trail bears left above the creek about 100 yards from the flat, beachlike area that is Oceanic Wall. About 100 feet before you reach Oceanic Wall, the Icon looms on your left.
