Cabin Fever

FA: Todd Cozzens Dwayne Monte 92/93

Description

Yet another lil South Fork Gem. Walk up Cabin Creek, till you come to I think it's the second drainage on your right coming all the way down to the river and start up...

Depending on conditions you may be able to walk up the ice to the base or dry rock climb a small gash on the right. Pretty obvious.

Location

Rap route, bolts on the right at the top of first pitch.

Protection

Screws, screws, screws.....V thread gear as usual

Running water at the top-do this after a cold spell. Cabin Fever on the left, and barely visible on the right side is California Ice. Feb 09

Great thing about Cody, you keep hiking up the drainages, then turn a corner and look at what you get 2nd pitch

[Hide Comment] I recall bolts above the first pitch, on climber's right. Depending on conditions, they may be covered with snow, or sheared off by summer storms.

The WI3-ish pitches above the first WI4 pitch are called Wyoming Wave in the guidebook. Jan 23, 2009

  • *LOST TOOL** I Lost an older BD fusion Tool after falling on this route this past weekend. Injured and had to bail without sufficient time to search for it. Its located somewhere at the base of the first step WI3 or so approaching P3. If it turns up now or in the spring please message me. THX

[Hide Comment] The bolts above Cabin Fever were in good condition as of Jan 2019. A great climb especially when combined with WY wave. Also this is the first major drainage on the right when walking up Cabin Creek. It took us about an hour from the car. Jan 24, 2019
