Description [Suggest Change]

In the Ice Park, this is the second route up stream from the upper bridge, located in the lead only area. This route is located directly below the second metal hook/ bar upstream from the bridge. Rap down and start by ascending the large vertical pillar, approximately 25 feet in length. Continue straight up some easier ground to another shorter vertical section. Pull through this section to some more easier ground to the top. The route is over 100 feet in length, so two ropes (or a fixed line) are required to reach the bottom.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Ice screws. Belay at top from the large metal bar/ hook.

Location [Suggest Change]

Just for consistency on the site, if Paranoia is graded WI4-5 this should be 4-5 as well. I don't recall Paranoia ever being dead vertical and this definitely is at the start. Special consideration is also due as it's in the Lead Only area and good protection near the bottom can be fiddly to secure due to chandeliering. I led this before they upgraded the water system though, so it could be easier now. Pretty sure it's 4-5 in the original Ice Park guides, too.

VERY cool position (for the Ice Park anyway) though. Jan 11, 2011
