The route starts on the right side of Firehouse Pillar under the rock and ice cave. Start up the ice inside the cave and climb 20 feet to a ledge. Traverse left on the difficult ledge past two bolts. Clip a third bolt on the right face of a dihedral. Traverse left and up by puling the dihedral. Clip a fourth bolt on the face above the dihedral and move up the rock face over small ice blobs to the free-hanging ice. Clip one more bolt on a ledge and move onto the delicate ice. Climb the steep ice to the trees above.

Descent: rappel or lower from the slings and rap ring anchors above the route. Descend carefully as it is easy to dislodge the free hanging icicles above. With the long distance of the traverse, the route may need to be cleaned before lowering--even on 60 m cords.


Screws and four or five bolts (quickdraws and one medium sling)

Toprope Protection

This sport mixed climb isn’t suited to toproping due to the dangerous swing potential and hanging ice above the route.

"Feel the Pressure", M8-. Dicey holds through friable limestone to join with Lowe Pressure.

Does anyone have any information about the bolted line through the roof crack (directly below the fall line for this route, after the rock traverse)? Jan 13, 2012
