Description

This route climbs the vertical plaque of rock right of Ice Cream Hangover. It doesn't look terribly appealing, what with the variety of bolts, runouts and no chalk, however it actually climbs pretty nice. I don't blame you if you don't want to try this thing ground up, but it's easy enough to rig a toprope from Ice Cream Hangover.

The climbing is pretty easy (11-?) but intimidating with very cool moves up to the obvious roof. The well-protected crux sequence starts here with some powerful to balancy moves getting over the roof and beyond.

Supposedly, this was one of the earliest routes at the Bank and is still one of the hardest. It deserves more traffic than it's getting...probably a couple more bolts at the start would fix that. Whaddayathink, Bob?

Location

This is just right of Ice Cream Hangover, which is just right of the Weather Wall at the Bank.

Protection

4 bolts, maybe some trad gear for the start.
