Description

This is seasonally a consistently formed route every year from parking lot and hill drainage. In some years it applies the New Mexico Rotten Ice(RI) rating, but it good years can get really fat. The crux is usually at the bottom before you can get any dependable gear. The top eases up and gets stickier.

Location

Locate this route by walking about 50 yards due east from the ice rink. It will be visible on the right as you walk. This route is directly in the center of the main flow. It is the obvious weakness up the middle.

Protection

Ice screws, red and yellow aliens, and runners to a two bolt anchor.
