Description

Area exctending from the old Historic Stage Area (off limits) to pond. Highly variable ice formations form naturally here that range from grade 3 to 6 and M5-7+. Farming most often enhances this area but, unless done throughout winter, leaves most lines bashed, unstable and down-graded for the rest of winter. Two lines form around the outside corner left of Matrix (Main Flow). Several pillars formed twice here that ranged from Grade 4 to 6. Several mixed and dry-tool routes of great quality occur here and only a few are noted on this forum.

The main flow area is one of the only areas that get natural ice somewhat reliably. The ice here goes at about WI4 when not picked out.

This area is located right in front of a couple permanent benches.

There are bolts up above most of the popular lines. Mar 25, 2013
