Description

This is a Sweet Colorado ice climb. Start with a bit of scrambling to a bench/alcove that will protect belayer. Climb a steep and a bit long waterfall ice. Protect with rock pro and ice screws. Top out into trees. This is brilliant, it is a must do.

Per kevin donald: this climb was named for Choppo, my nickname for Charlie Fowler.

Protection

Small/medium nuts & SLCDs, ice screws, runners and draws, and half (double) ropes will do. There is a slung tree from which to rappel, ~50m.

Toprope Protection

Slings.
This route was first climbed in '76 and was named for "Choppo" (my nickname for Charlie Fowler) who was just learning to ice climb at the time. He learned really fast! This was one of his first leads if I remember correctly.

Cheers!

I've climbed the route using mostly ice pro and some rock pro with 60 meter half ropes. Feb 24, 2003

Two 50m ropes work just fine for the rap. I have done this several times. Feb 5, 2003
I'm not sure what Joey T meant by the comment "half ropes will do ". The pitch is fairly long and requires 2 60 meter ropes for the rap (50 meters might make it to the low angle snow). A good belay can be set off to the right side of the icefall on a sunny bench. There are a couple pockets there that will take a #1 Camalot and a yellow Alien. Be sure to set the belay well to the right. Under the conditions we did it (2-4-03) no rock gear needs to be taken by the leader. The lead is solid WI4 and currently similar to the Rigid Designator in difficulty. Feb 5, 2003
