DescriptionThis is the most dependable flow in the area and a good one. Misrepresented in David Black's Ice Climbing Utah book, this is an excellent climb.
Pitch 1- WI-3 Fat 30-40 vertical flow starting at the end of the canyon. Belay from slings at a tree 15 feet back from the ice. continue up snow (class II) for 200' to the base of pitch 2
Pitch 2- WI-2 climb a short, thin flow for 30-40 feet. Usually done unroped. Continue up snow (class II) for 100' to the base of pitch 3.
Pitch 3- WI-2 climb a short, thin flow for 40 feet. Usually done unroped. If this is melted out it can be climbed at M3/4 R
Pitch 4 WI-4 The goods. This is what it is all about. Climb a thin flow for 35' to the inner-sanctum ledge, then climb another 50' to another ledge. Look ten feet up to a tree- that's your anchor. Climb up and around to sling anchor. The ice can be thin for the last 10 feet to the ledge. 60 M rope required.
Descend rap route.
