Access Issue: Private Property/Skin or Hike Approach Details


Climb the first section to a belay under the arch roof. Aid out six bolts to the curtain, then up the couloir. A bolt protects the exit moves, 2 bolt rappel


Even if this route is not in, it's obvious from the photo where it should be. Seriously, you can't mistake it for anything else.


Stubbies down low, draws for the bolts, short-medium screws for the top

The bottom section is a fun bit of ice, good for end of the day or if you got skunked on other ice in the area (or got snail eye). Typically fairly thick (in zee middle) ice and around WI 3. Two bolt anchor to the right, above the ice. This anchor allows TRin' the thin stuff to the right as well, in case you're not dailed in, or, want another short burn. I always look at the condition of the Dagger as an indication of whether other stuff will be in further up in the box. Fun stuff. Jan 22, 2008

wish it would of been fully formed- only thin stuff up to the cave over the weekend- still a short but sweet route to pop your cherry in box canyon- right at the front of box Mar 6, 2018
