Description [Suggest Change]
3 pitches. WI3+, WI4 (sustained: ramp then vertical ~100 ft.), WI3+. There on 2 bolts on the left side of P2 base. There are bolts on the right side of P3 base. There is a tree at the top of P3. Each pitch is a full rope length. If you feel burly, you can do the "Moonrise" WI5 curtain instead of the "High on Boulder" crux pitch.
Location [Suggest Change]
Go to the end of the Road. Look left. Locate "Mean Green". Now look right of "Mean Green" and "High on Boulder" will be the next flow to the right. You will see the wide crux pitch. The approach takes ~1 hour. Head straight for the ice, then get into the drainage/gully as soon as you can. Continue up the gully to the base. Go do it.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Bring enough screws for 100 ft. of continuous ice.
