Description

Since the buttress is called Fire and Ice, you might expect more from this climb. Climb the thin hands crack(crux) for about 25 Ft to a ledge. Continue up some really dirty corners to rap from a tree. The bottom is really nice, but dirty, and the crux is even shorter. This is worth doing along with Fire if you are in the area. If you are looking to bag a fairly easy 11c, this might be a good candidate

Location

Just behind a large tree, to the left of 2 obvious short cracks.

Protection

Thin hands gear, .75 camalot or so. Tree with slings at top.

Two bolt anchors have been added to the top. Great gear great line just short. Protects well with .75 and 1's may want a two for the bottom and the top out. Stays pretty clean for a route not often done Sep 5, 2016
