Description

Originally climbed as lower part of 'Slow Turning' these moderate pitches offer a variety of terrain as you climb up through a tight rock chimney. Depending upon conditions, I was told this route usually is quite wet but perhaps technique can offer up options (I remained relatively dry). Very fun ATC (all terrain climb) in both approach & climb. Considered to be one of the "easiest" approaches in the valley by comparison...heheh

User Jason Todd says: Super casual approach. 20 minutes (All times are fat guy with 6-12" of snow). A couple small steps of "ice bouldering" immediately before first pitch. There are 4 pitches to Stringer. 120m total of ice. P1-45m, WI3, Bolt anchor on right. 5 minutes P2-30m, WI2, Single bolt for anchor on left side. 10 minutes P3-20m, WI2, Tree anchor on right 30 minutes P4-25m, WI3, screw anchor, rap from vthread or walk off right.

Location

Small non-descript pullouts beginning at 1.6-1.8 mi. from Ishawooa Mesa Trailhead. Park off road. Climb is in drainage canyon 'Slow Turning'.

Protection

Typical screws, bolts at top. Rap will require 2 ropes.
