LocationOn north side of Mickey Mouse wall in Eldorado Canyon.
N39 55.085 W105 17.022
See this track in google earth:
Notes from JRoberts: Approach is via Rattlesnake Trail to RR tracks.
DescriptionTwo short ice steps followed by a narrow dihedral tops out at a bulge after 65 meters.
Notes from JRoberts: WI5-, M4. This is the ice climb that forms on the backside of Mickey Mouse Wall above Tunnel #6. Rappel on trees to the right of the climb.
Notes from DougS: Traverse right towards two trees on level with the end of the ice for a 60m rappel to the base, we slung the trees with yellow cord and left a leaver biner (taped closed).
ProtectionAt least 7 screws or more if your like. A 70meter rope would be best to do it as one pitch.
Notes from JRoberts: Bring six medium length screws, two Stubbies and some small-medium cams.
Notes from DougS: Did Mous-Ka-Tears today (WI4+?). I would recommend one longer screw (19 cm?) in addition to Jack's suggestions, as there is a nice layer of mank before one of the steep steps.
