Description

This is the center-left flow on the Main Wall. Climb easy ice to a ledge 40 to 50 feet up. From here the pitch steepens, eventually pulling a bulge and reaching a bolted anchor at a small stance 40m off the ground. Another 30m of climbing up and slightly right deposits you on the talus at the top. Look for a bolted anchor on a big boulder. Of course, you can always climb variations to start the route or end it, as with many of these climbs.

Location

Main wall.

Protection

9 screws will sew it up.

The picture shows a line on Chouinard Falls, but the description seems to imply the leftmost line on the Main Wall. Jan 12, 2011

Did this on Saturday (March 9, 2019). Big snow this year so was able to rap the entire route with a couple 70m ropes and had around 20m left at the base. Plenty of virgin ice but low quality (felt like solid WI4). Approach was all snow. Road was recently plowed all the way to the power plant. Wooohooooo! Mar 11, 2019
