Description

This is an excellent dead-end variation to Thin Ice - worth the time and effort if you're up for the challenge.

P1: Begin as for Thin Ice, but instead of traversing right, continue up the crack system to a bolted anchor. 5.10-.

P2: Continue straight up the ever-steepening and thinning crack and step left to clip the anchor. The most difficult move is perhaps the very last one! 5.11-.

Rap back down (I believe a single 70m rope got us down) and finish with the upper pitches of Thin Ice.

Protection

Double set of cams, wires, small stuff.

Yeah the bolt is off route and weird. I've always thought it might be a way back over to Thin Ice. Feb 5, 2017

Rowdy and somewhat desperate at 11-...this climb is a blast. I'll never forget the final moves. The bolt seems unnecessary and poorly-placed--there's a good placement nearby that keeps the rope in a safer line than if one used the bolt. Sep 9, 2016

The second pitch (11b) is about 95' long and can be rapped with a 60m rope. Jul 15, 2008
