DescriptionThis climb looks much more impressive from the road than it does once you get there. The climb consists of 20-30 feet of 60-70 degree fat ice interrupted by a few narrow footstep ledges. A small step above can be hiked to extend the pitch. Belay from plentiful trees above. This is an excellent place to bring nervous beginners or to attempt your first solo climb. Experienced climbers should head up to the Second Flow. The climb is not documented in any climbing guides. The area is not often climbed and sheltered from the sounds of the roada pleasant change from the other climbs in the canyon. There is no more steep ice above this pitch.
Descent: Hike down or around the upper step and rappel by wrapping your rope around a small juniper tree at the top of the climb. Alternately scramble down steep rocks beside the climb to eliminate the rappel.
