Location

The middle of the Apocalypse Wall..The right of the two gullies....

Description

Just right of the rock route, Apocalypse Later (5.11c) is a low angle corner that fills with ice...At the top is a nice very short pillar, if you want to finish on a more interesting top out climb it top out...If you want it easy, clip in to the anchor to the right (this is the anchor to Kate's Arete (5.4) and lower to the ground....

The route can look really thin, but usually you can get bomber screws in the corner were the ice is thicker....

Protection

Screws, some short ones if its really thin....
You can also clip some of the bolts on Kate's Arete....

I think the beta for this route is to chimney. There are a number of spots where you can get very comfortable rests by leaning on the left wall. Rest your calfs, place the pro there. Solid grade 2 with this technique in my opinion. Dec 15, 2013

This is an enjoyable route, and I thought more in the solid-3 category because it was quite a continuous calf-burner (and the good pro would be left-handed).

The trick is that you can't see it (from the road) until you've passed it and look backwards. Jan 26, 2010
