Description

Walk through the lower ice cave and then some trees to the top of a dirt mound. The start is at the top or slightly downhill to the left as you face the wall. Initially it climbs straight up and then trends left after the first few bolts. The crux is just after the first couple of moves while you attempt to find some part of the rock for your feet that hasn't been shined enough to shave with (not that climbers shave). After the first couple of bolts the rock is less worn and the climb is very enjoyable.

Protection

8 bolts to a 2 chain anchor.

Thank you for the new hardware. Much appreciated. Super slick and spooky through the first two bolts ground up with no stick clip. Very enjoyable at .9 grade the rest of the way to the anchors. Sep 1, 2017
I wasn't a fan of the slick start. Wish I'd stick-clipped the first 2 bolts--same way I felt about Continental Breakfast; however, the ground is flat & dirt (as opposed to rock). I had a good time after I reached the 3rd bolt. Aug 16, 2016

7 protection bolts and 2 anchor bolts were replaced on this route in the spring of 2012 with support from the ASCA.
