Description

This is a pretty sustained route with 3 very different and distinct cruxes. First: Grovel and grunt your way up the first 30'. Either choose a dirty gully to the left or sketchy verglas blobs to the right. At the constriction above, a #3 Camalot nicely protects the squeeze (on left) before poping thru to a ledge. Then push up thru a chimney. (#4-4.5 cam would be nice here). The final crux is a delicate, bulging, ice column. Stubbies are the norm on this route also. After exiting the 50' plumb ice, another 30' of a WI3 ribbon leads to a tiny chimney. I placed a screw here and traversed about 20' right to a tree (visible in image). It now has a sling w/ rap rings.

Location

200' right of ??.

Protection

6 stubbie screws, full single rock rack, and 2 big cams would be real nice (#4 & #4.5). A 70m rope will make getting to the tree much more appealing. (rap tree visible in photo)
