DescriptionOne of the best-known grade 4's of the area. Solid ice, very well protected.
Pitch 1: Climb WI 3 bulges to a stance at the bottom of a vertical pillar. Guidebook mentions pins on the left for belay. We used slings in a v-thread right of the pillar.
Pitch 2: Climb the pillar (crux, WI 4) and several ice steps that follow to the top. Rap the route.
It can also be done in a single pitch. Double 60m ropes get you down to the belay anchors at the base.
