Description Suggest change

This is can be a fun mixed route for those seeking to wander into the realm of mixed climbing & clipping bolts while connected to pointy metal appendages. The bolts belong to Seamstress. Or, you can go traditional & fire the vertical pillar with nary a rock crystal to dull your fine tools. It lies just downstream from Tic Tac as the downstream set of 2 bolt lines on a vertical rock buttress between Stonefree (below a large tree) & Sunscream (out on a rocky promentory with a 2 bolt anchor).

There are multiple starts varying from lower angle ice to chandeliered curtains to suit your fancy. Gain a ledge about half height from which you can easily clip the 1st of 5 bolts. A tall person may be able to clip the 2nd bolt from the same ledge. To keep with the mixed genre, stem between rock on the L & the pillar on the R. There can be a few no arms stems. There can be terrific hooks on the ice pillar to spare your guns. Clip 5 bolts & move R onto the pillar on to briefly overhanging terrain. Fire up a bit of ice to the top.

Or, be trad & fire up the pillar to the top.

Or, the R side of the pillar can be ascended with some fun ice chimney stuff at the top.

WI4+ M4+ 100ft on 2/12/4. WI5- on the R on 2/18/6.
