Description [Suggest Change]

Located to the right of the main flow is a slightly less than vertical, right-facing dihedral. The rating is from the RMNP High Mtn book.

Make your way up this for 45 feet to the ledge. A belay can be made here to lessen drag or just top it out.

From the ledge, a 4-5" crack heads to the roof at the top. An ice dagger formed here but was not in when we climbed Dec. 1, '07.

Location [Suggest Change]

This is located to the right of the main flow in a right-facing dihedral that goes to the ledge with the 4" crack above it.

Protection [Suggest Change]

TR - walk around and past the main flow anchor area. Anchor from a tree.

It could be lead on gear with small - medium nuts, a few cams (up to # C4), and maybe a stubby or two if the ice is in.

Great climb. Top (in its current condition) is much easier than it looks from the ground. I brought a #4 C4 which was too small. Consider bigger gear if you want to seal it up. Otherwise a screw in the top of the ice seems sufficient as it's probably only 5.7/8 to the top of the block. Feb 28, 2012

I had an old #4.5 (new #5) Camalot and it was too small for the crack. An old #5 Camalot would be perfect. You can also get a small nut or a #1 blue TCU in the small crack to the left.
Great fun but pretty bad rope drag! Mar 16, 2012
