DescriptionThis climb starts at the high point between Aquarium rock and Icehouse rock. This is easily reached by scrambling uphill on the southwest side of the formation.
Pitch 1: Climb a right leaning crack/flake to an obvious large ledge on the south side.
Pitch 2: Traverse right to reach a low angle chimney. If you're squeemish, this traverse can be protected by a medium nut and/or alien. When you get to the chimney, climb the face placing pro in the chimney when possible. Another ledge is reached at which a belay can be set if desired. Otherwise, traverse to the right again and head up when the climbing looks easy. This last section is runout but the climbing is very easy.
Descent: Getting off the top requires a short downclimb to the east to reach a ledge with rappel bolts. A single rope will just get you to the ground on the north side of the rock.
